                  What our graduates say about ELITE

                  SAFETY IS EVERYTHING

                  Line work is a profession that demands safe work practices. That’s why safety is of the utmost importance to us. We demand a high standard of safety from our students, so they’ll demand that same high standard from themselves when they’re in the field.

                  • Highest standard of safety for students and staff.
                  • Instructors have a combined 104 years of safe work experience in the utility industry.
                  • Must complete OSHA certifications to graduate.

                  Want to become an ELITE lineman?

                  Linemen need to be able to climb poles, operate equipment, construct and maintain distribution circuits, install poles and transformers, as well as string wire. We will teach you to do that and more, but we’ll also do something else that will truly help you to be ELITE, and that’s to invest in YOU as a person. We will not only help you get into this great industry, but we will help you grow as a person in your character. You can know that if you choose ELITE as your school, you will be attending a place that will care for you like no other, SO THAT you can become a lineman and person like no other!
