Electrical Line Worker Technology Program Kennebec Valley Community College
May 24, 2016

On May 21st, Kennebec Valley Community College will graduate the Electrical Lineworker Technology Program Class of 2016. The program is a one year certificate program and the only one of its kind in the northeast. Students graduate with the technical background and the manual skills necessary for careers in the installation and maintenance of electrical power, telephone, and cable television systems. Safety, pole climbing, and teamwork are emphasized throughout the program while the student learns and performs overhead and underground construction. Graduates can expect to earn $35,000-$40,000 in their first year of employment and as our energy infrastructure is updated, this program is graduating the workforce necessary to accomplish that substantial need.

In fact, right here in Maine there is one business in particular that is addressing that need and relying on the program to supply their workforce. On Target Utility Services is New England’s largest private locating service and a well-equipped power line construction company. The construction division provides transmission and distribution construction and maintenance, storm and emergency restoration, dedicated utility pole setting, smart grid infrastructure construction, and fiber optic cable installation and splicing services. Close to 80% of On Target’s construction division workforce comes from the KVCC Electrical Lineworker Technology Program. On Target is also a significant supporter of the program, helping to shape the curriculum and provide training. You can trace senior leadership at On Target all the way back to the program. In addition, John Fallona, President of On Target;  Rita Bilodeau, Director of Support Services and John Boucher, the Construction Division Operations Manager at On Target all serve on the program’s advisory committee.   Rita Bilodeau, is also a  member of the KVCC Board of Directors.
