So I'm looking into getting into the lineman career because of the rad benifets and pay. Thing is, its dangerous as fuck and I have people that care about me. Any lineman here that can give me insight on the job and what I should expect?

Which team do you want to play for?
>>
>>16504655
Fuck I should clarify I mean a high voltage cable repair/installation utility worker
>>
>>16504673
I was joking. It is dangerous. But I imagine you have to be highly trained and skilled in what you are doing. Skill and experience with the right amount of fear will make it less dangerous.
>>
It's probably not as dangerous as you think. You'll have the training and proper equipment to do it.

I wouldn't worry about it at all.

>>16504682
Surprisingly the tech school I'm looking at is a one year course. It seems like its not a lot of time for such a job.

>>16504688
On a scale of most dangerous jobs in murica its pretty high up there, like really high. And to my shock so is garbage men.
>>
>>16504689
I'm pretty sure they'd have an apprenticeship or shadowing someone for a while before they stick you with the real stuff.
>>
>>16504703
I'd get my apprenticeship through the school and would follow a journymen for a few years. But I'd imagine I'd get my hands dirty during that period. I feel like I just need to have a good since of situational awareness and know what the fuck I'm doing

Your still over-reacting. Being a pilot is also one of the top dangerous jobs. And how many commercial airline pilots die a year to job related occurances. Like none.

You'll be fine. Don't worry about it. Go make that money
>>

Thanks m8, its seriously insane the pay though. A 1 year class will cost 6500 in tuition and I'll make 60-80k a year straight of the bat and then 100-150k+ as a journymen. Its fucking nice

I'm hoping Dominion Power opens up their apprenticeship program soon here. They hire with no previous for Groundsmen. And you make $25/hr full time while you shadow a Linesman for 3 years. After the 3rd year you take a Linesman cert. If you pass you get rated as a Linesman and your pay jumps to $39/hr.

>>16504737
I was checking out the groundsman job overview and it seems like there grounded linesmen. I'm still keeping my options open as to what I want and that doesn't seem all to bad either.
>>
>>16504753

Yeah do what you gotta do. If Groundsmen opens here I'll take it. I don't really see my life going anywhere at this point. I don't have really many options.
