NEPPA offers a four-year curriculum of the Northwest Lineman College’s Lineworker Certification Program and combines hands-on and formal classroom training. Students attend class four times a year for four days each to complete the four-year program.
In addition to classroom time, students are expected to:
Self-study by reading the material
Track, record, and submit monthly apprenticeship reports of on-the-job training
Track, record and submit quarterly “competency” forms
Each year, students participate in an additional two-day Skills Assessment Rodeo each year. The Apprentice Rodeo is designed to showcase the apprentices’ developing technical and climbing skills, and to reinforce the program’s focus on professionalism, safety, and proper technique.
Students are required to attend all 16-days of the in-class program as well as the two-day Skills Assessment Rodeo. Any student unable to attend their regularly scheduled class or the Skills Assessment Rodeo is required to make-up the time, training, and competencies covered during those class days. To progress into the next year or to complete the Program, all students must complete the full program requirements.
