Electric Power Technology -- Program Profile

Students looking for a good-paying career straight out of high school have a viable option through Kilgore College’s Electric Power Technology Certificate. The 10-week course of study will award those who graduate with an electrical power certificate which will allow them to go right to work for an electric cooperative company.

Electrical lineworkers can expect to earn $11-20 as a starting salary. With a large number of projected employee retirements within the next five to seven years, statewide electric cooperatives are expecting a significant shortage. Workers can expect a great job, great salary and benefits.

In-the-field courses will be taught at Rusk County Electric Cooperative in Henderson. Classroom instruction will be held in Kilgore and Henderson.

Students must pass a TX DOT physical and drug test as a prerequisite for the Electric Power Technology Certificate. Students will be subject to random drug testing during the weeks of instruction. Proof of Medical insurance is required to enroll.
