At Power and Construction Group we endeavor to provide growth opportunity to our employees. In our pursuit to ensure we have highly trained and qualified employees in our electric division, management selects highly motivated individuals to participate in the Northeast Public Power Association (NEPPA) Apprentice Lineworker Program.
This is an intense four (4) year program designed to prepare apprentice lineworkers for a career progression to a journey level lineworker certification in either overhead or underground high/low voltage electric systems and components. Apprentices attend formal classroom instruction which includes electric theory, crew leadership, and self-study along with integrating on-the-job learning and application. Each years’ experience culminates in a “timed” team demonstration (rodeo) of skills learned throughout the year where the apprentices participate in numerous events throughout the week. It is also a time when family is encouraged to attend the event and experience what is required to become a journey level lineworker in the electric industry.
When our employees successfully complete the apprentice program, it is a win-win; we have skilled and highly motivated employees and our continued success in providing safe, reliable, and quality services to our customers.
UTV Training 2022
As part of our Utility Structures Division our employees rely on UTV’s to get themselves and equipment to the structures. Some of the most remote areas of New York State. UTV’s are a lot like cars but you are not on a flat road. Our Team spent a week down in Pennsylvania at the AOAA Trails where we had Offroad-Consulting teach 30 of our Utility Structure Crew members how to properly operate a UTV in all conditions. Mud, Hills, Rocks, Water and much more. A great time was had at the same time as helping our Employees become better operators and safer Employees.
