Power Delivery Programs
The Power Delivery Programs are distance-learning programs offered to electric utility and construction companies for employee certification. NLC programs are most commonly used as the curriculum component of apprenticeship-leading-to-journeyman certification and are ideal for adoption or endorsement by utility companies and statewide organizations.
Each enrollee must be a power utility or construction company employee. Enrollees earn Northwest Lineman College certification upon completion. The curriculum can also be used to earn U.S. Department of Labor (or equivalent state agency) certification.
Each program is comprised of various sections arranged in logical sequence and assembled into modules. Each program exceeds the U.S. Department of Labor requirement of 144 hours of academic training per year. NLC programs are completely self-contained; no other books or materials are required for completion.
Subjects are comprised of technical aspects of the power delivery industry, and provide valuable background information for work encountered in the field regarding construction, maintenance, and operation of the system. A concerted effort is made to ensure our programs remain updated to meet the needs of today’s industry. NLC Power Delivery Programs are the time-tested benchmark of apprentice training. Today, hundreds of companies across the U.S. use these programs to ensure their employees are safe, educated, and Certified for Life®.
