Apprenticeship Program

KPUB and other utilities play an enormous role in apprenticeship. KPUB’s apprenticeship program is recognized by the Department of Labor and audited frequently to ensure compliance and integrity. To become a Journey Lineman, Apprentice Linemen, or trainees, must complete 8,000 hours of on-the-job training and 144 hours of book work on their own time. Once completed, graduates receive a certificate of completion and a certification that will carry throughout their career.

The apprenticeship in Texas a paid program designed to focus on training and education. Apprentices work with and learn from established Journeymen in a hands-on setting. KPUB linemen serve as coaches, mentors, and teachers to the apprentices during their training. Apprentices will also work in several different areas of the industry such as the substations and power lines. Much of our linemen’s success is attributed to the Journey Linemen that train the apprentices.

Since 2006, KPUB has had 21 apprentices complete the training and receive their certification recognized by the Department of Labor. Today, 12 of those linemen are still employed at Kerrville Public Utility Board. We are so incredibly grateful for all our linemen and their dedication to our community. Thank you, KPUB linemen!
