Our Mission

Sustainable, industry-leading education

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.


Utility Lineworker Program

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.

  • Learn how to safely construct, maintain and operate the nation’s power grid
  • Learn how to work in elevated positions using the industry’s most up-to-date safety equipment
  • Learn to operate bucket trucks and digger derricks
