Advanced Lineman Training Program

Second Class of Program Scheduled for Fall

The next Advanced Lineman Training Program (ALTP) class is Oct. 30-Nov. 1, at the Franklin Training Center.


The ALTP is designed for line crew leaders from across the state to come together and hone their skills in line work, safety and leadership. In the three-year program, participants will spend two and a half days, once per year, where they will receive a combination of classroom and hands-on experience with industry best-practice work methods and equipment.

Participants will receive in-depth training on overhead lines, underground lines, grounding procedures, job planning and much more, while continuing to develop leadership skills. Crew leaders are the most important part of any line department’s safety culture and operational directives. If these leaders are educated and skilled in the latest work practices and leadership techniques, then those they lead will follow in the same direction.

The class is limited to 12 participants per year so the experience can be as interactive as possible. Classes are also limited to one participant per co-op, per session and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

To register a first-year participant, contact Greg Pemberton, The registration deadline is Monday, Oct. 16.

The second-year participant session is scheduled for Nov. 13-15.
