Major utility providers in Acadiana are joining forces with South Louisiana Community College for a proposed Power Lineman Technician Training Program.
The 4-month program would be part of SLCC’s Corporate College division, which provides short-term, non-academic training. The community college is partnering with CLECO and SLEMCO for the program.
“We know there’s a need for linemen now,” said Jermaine Ford, SLCC’s Associate Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development. “We’re excited to partner with these companies as we develop curriculum and attain equipment.”
