Lineman Academy

​The Utilities profession represents an $880 billion industry responsible for providing crucial infrastructure support to state and local customers throughout Texas and our nation. As a State Agency responsible for providing technical training and practical solutions to over 120,000 students annually, TEEX is proud to announce the new Lineman Academy, a comprehensive entry-level (kind of like pre-employment more) training experience for individuals seeking a career in the utilities industry.

The TEEX Lineman Academy is a 480-hour class delivered over a 15-week period utilizing traditional classroom instruction combined with practical field exercises followed by required skills testing.

Upon successful completion of the Academy, participants receive:

  • Wood Pole Climbing Qualification Card
  • Bucket & Digger Truck Operator Qualification Card
  • OSHA 10-hour Construction ET&D Card
  • First Aid/AED Card

In addition to the qualification cards, students will have the opportunity to prepare for the Class A CDL exam offered through the Texas Department of Public Safety. Students also receive training and guidance on writing effective resumes, successful interviewing techniques, and opportunities to participate in a hosted job fair connecting students with potential employers.
