What Is A Lineman?

A Lineman is somebody who builds and constructs Power-lines, substations, underground wire, and all “outside” of the home power delivery systems. These are the structures and poles you see everywhere you go. Linemen are also responsible for maintaining and repairing the power grid. This includes rebuilding and repairing old lines, substations, and other power grid components. The reason you have power is because of linemen.

Meet your instructor. Austin completed the Northwest Line JATC in 2020. Austin started in this trade over 5 years ago and he’s been loving it ever since. From doing helicopter work in the Columbia gorge, to pole changeouts in Seattle back yards, he’s experienced a bunch and now he’s here to help others get started.

When Austin was first getting started in the trade, he had no idea where to go. He spent hours upon hours making calls and researching online about where to get started. 5 years, and a journeyman card later, enter Livewire Academy. A teaching platform designed to give you the information needed to start for yourself in the line trade.

When Austin isn’t busy keeping your power on, you can find him out riding dirtbikes, enjoying the outdoors and cruising around on his streetbike!
