The ELITE lineman training Institute was started by Waylon Hasty in March of 2019. Waylon left a 15-year career in the line work industry to start the school. Through much prayer, and with great conviction, he decided to start ELTI. Waylon has a heart for young people, and ELTI was created with the intent to impact them.
The school is meant to be small. The school has one full time, and two part time instructors, with class sizes ranging from seven to twelve students. The class size is small because we want to be able to pay close attention to each student. We want a quality graduate leaving the program, so attention to detail with our students is very important.
Because Waylon knows the industry, he knows what employers are looking for. That’s why at ELTI students are required to have certain certifications and qualifications. If they don’t have these qualifications they don’t graduate.
The school is located in Tunnel Hill, GA, and at ELTI we provide the teaching and tools needed through a twelve-week course to achieve a successful career in the line working profession.
