Apprenticeship Program

The PLH Apprenticeship Program was launched in January 2012 and since then dozens of transmission, distribution and substation employees have enrolled and graduated, earning their U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Journeyman certification as a result.

In 2011, PLH Group worked closely with the Northwest Lineman College in Denton, Texas, to create a lineman apprenticeship program for employees of PLH Group companies.

About the PLH Apprenticeship Program

Registered with the Texas Veterans Commission, the program requires a combination of 144 hours of classwork and 2,000 hours of documented on-the-job training annually for four years. In keeping with PLH Group values, the program emphasizes safety and protection first and foremost.

The goal of the program is to provide employees with the opportunity to further their education and earn higher-paying jobs, while helping PLH Group companies develop and retain a highly skilled workforce.

The apprenticeship includes many aspects of electric power services and electric infrastructure training including transmission construction and maintenance, electric power distribution, energized electrical work, storm restoration and infrastructure construction solutions.

Based on the proven success of its apprenticeship program, PLH Group was chosen for membership in the U.S. DOL’s ApprenticeshipUSA LEADER program and for participation in the ApprenticeshipUSA White House Summit and Congressional Event in September 2015.
