Apprenticeship Training -

Apprenticeship is an opportunity for inexperienced individuals to learn a career skill through actual “hands on” training, and not just reading about the 'how-to's' from a book.

Line Clearance Tree Trimmer Apprentices are full time employees of our signatory contractors [click here to view full list]. They earn excellent pay and benefits while they are being taught skills of the job.

The Work of our Members -

-We trim trees away from the conductors to keep the electricity flowing on a regular basis.

-We remove dangerous trees that might create a hazard to the conductors.

-We are often called out in the middle of the night to remove trees which have fallen on the power lines so that the utility can restore the power.

-We respond to outages caused by storms.

-We apply herbicide to control brush growth and stump treatment.

Our Journeyman Trimmers have been trained in both climbing trees and running bucket trucks to remove limbs away from energized conductors.
