Gas technician and line technician programs
Gas technicians install, maintain and operate both high and low-pressure natural gas distribution systems used to supply residential, commercial and industrial companies.
Line workers get electricity to homes, stores, schools, factories and more. They use their skills to install and repair cables, wires and other equipment you might see on an electrical pole. Take a minute to check out the Electric Power Distribution Programs offered by these schools.
