College isn’t for everyone. And that’s okay.
What if we told you it was possible to earn a four-year certification in a well-paying and fulfilling career? That instead of acquiring a mountain of debt, you could earn a living at the same time? The Lineman Apprenticeship program at Sumter makes that possible.
Through four years of training at our headquarters in Sumter, South Carolina, future lineworkers can gain a wealth of knowledge and valuable experience at the same time, all while earning a living.
We are investing in the future of our employees,
our company, and our customers.
By training apprentice linemen, Sumter is paving the way to support an expanding industry. It’s an investment that is worth it for everyone, and it’s an effort that makes us proud. Through our partnership with Be Pro, Be Proud South Carolina, we are committed to sharing the value of pursuing trade opportunities. The program showcases the endless possibilities that exist for those who aren’t interested in traditional higher education. Find out more here.
Our goal is to have the best trained workforce in the industry.
Which is why we implemented our training program in 2006. And it works! Our lineman apprenticeship program has increased employee retention and morale, reduced on the job injuries, and supports an ever expanding workforce. As a result, our customers see higher quality and faster delivery, giving them an advantage in the market.
With Sumter’s high quality workforce at the helm, anything is possible.
