About the Training
The NUITF, with the cooperation of our member utilities, periodically conducts pre-employment boot camps as an entry to our industry. As students in the boot camp, each individual will be exposed to pole climbing, the tools used to do our work, the materials used to construct powerlines, and some very basic electrical theory. None of this will replace any part of a formal apprenticeship, but will allow the student to try it out before formally applying for a job as an apprenticeship. Those who successfully complete the six weeks of training will receive a certificate of completion, an excellent addition to their resume.
