LUMA College provides industry-leading educational experiences for companies and individuals tasked with rebuilding Puerto Rico’s electric power infrastructure. LUMA College is funded entirely by Quanta Services’ and ATCO’s commitment to a sustainable Puerto Rican workforce.
Through this 13-week pre-apprentice training program, trainees acquire the knowledge, skill and behaviors that prepare them to be a highly valuable entry-level lineworker.
Using the Three-Phase Educational Model, LUMA College For Technical Training (LCTT) focuses education around three domains of learning: Knowledge, Skill and Behavior. Each academic course, skill competency, and behavior expectation is shaped by this model.
LUMA College delivers a range of advanced training options at your location or at our campus. Our training courses and certifications include journeyman refresher training, rubber glove, advanced transformers, and a variety of other specialized trainings.
The TransBanker is a mobile transformer training simulator providing a hands-on education in correctly selecting, banking and connecting transformers. Used in both the Utility Lineworker Program, and available for on-location company training, this simulator is uniquely developed to maximize learning and knowledge retention.
Founded by Quanta Services and ATCO, LUMA College for Technical Training is modeled after Quanta’s educational institution Northwest Lineman College.
