Apprentice Lineworkers will be trained in overhead, conventional underground and Underground Residential Distribution electric systems. This position will assist other employees in performance of assigned tasks and with the installation, expansion, relocation, repair and maintenance of facilities and service to residents. In addition to normal line work, apprentice lineworkers will also support the construction, operation and maintenance of the water distribution system as needed.
