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 promotes a positive learning environment where students are challenged, encouraged, and held accountable. Students are placed in crews where teamwork is emphasized daily.
Students attend class and field training in equal parts each day, Monday through Thursday. Fridays are reserved for preparation and study.
Class sizes are limited to maximize student safety, productivity, and camaraderie.
