  • Advance standing in employers’ Apprenticeship programs


“For many years, South Plains Electric Cooperative has looked to Northwest Lineman College for the outstanding curriculum it offers a range of students. We specifically appreciate and value the Utility Lineworker Program, which has benefited not only our linemen with a CDL, but also our brand-new linemen just starting out in our apprentice program.”
