    NCCER Releases Power Line Worker Curriculum

    For Immediate Release
    2.28.12

    Alachua, Fla. — NCCER is proud to announce the release of Power Line Worker: Transmission Level Two. This curriculum covers the skills and knowledge necessary to develop outstanding transmission line workers, including three-phase systems, structure rigging and erection, equipment installation, and system maintenance.

    Power line workers are expected to be in high demand, as more than 20% of the current workforce will retire by next decade. This demand will only intensify as the nation struggles to modernize an aging energy infrastructure.

    “The best way to be safe and effective in the power distribution industry is to be properly trained,” said Don Daniel, Vice President for Business Operations for MasTec Energy Services North America, Inc. “The NCCER program was developed to provide a standardized power line worker curriculum to support apprenticeship programs nationwide. It’s far superior to any training material I’ve seen.”

    Students successfully completing Power Line Worker: Transmission Level Two through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor will earn industry-recognized credentials verifiable through the NCCER Automated National Registry.

    NCCER worked with subject matter experts representing industry and academia across the country to introduce relevant industry topics. For more information on NCCER curriculum, visit www.nccer.org/catalog.
