Be the One They Call After the Storm

Associate in Applied Science
in High Voltage Lineman

OSUIT’s program training future high voltage linemen utilizes the university’s outdoor lab, the latest technology and a hands-on instructional approach to teach everything from pole climbing to substation operations to electrical and transformer theory.

In addition to instruction on campus, students can also take advantage of paid internships to gain additional first-hand knowledge and experience, some even participating in helping restore power to areas devastated by storms.

With an Associate in Applied Science in High Voltage Lineman, graduates begin work as a lineman (power line technician) and advance to foremen, job superintendents, labor leaders, power line estimators and contractors. These are careers not many people can undertake and the need for these positions is expected to only increase.
