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 ELITE. Waylon has a heart for young people, and ELITE was created with the intent to impact them.
The school is meant to be small. The intent is to have a student to instructor ratio that is 8 to 1. We do this 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 we know the industry, we knows what employers are looking for. That’s why at ELITE 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 ELITE we provide the teaching and tools needed, through an eleven-week course, in order to achieve a long lasting career in the utility industry.
