Three linemen apprentices achieve journeymen status 

 

Three City of Lebanon electric apprentice linemen are now journeymen lineman after recently completing the four-year Missouri Public Utility Alliance Apprentice Lineworker Program.  

 

Rick Alexander, Andrew Bowman and Matt Crump completed the program, and according to Travis Long, electric superintendent, maintained an A average throughout the duration.   

 

“I am excited for these men and their achievement,” Long said. “We appreciate the sacrifices their families have made allowing them to reach this milestone.”  

 

While their classroom education may be over, this is just the beginning of their journeymen linemen career.   

 

“Education and safe practices never stop in this industry. Every time they get in the bucket, or climb a pole is an opportunity to not only practice what they have learned but learn something new,” Long said.   


The rigorous program required the men complete 7,200 hours of on-the-job training along with monthly testing.   

 

"It takes a high level of dedication and commitment to successfully complete this program,” Long said. “Organizationally, this accomplishment will give us more flexibility in that a Journeyman lineman can perform tasks that an apprentice is not permitted to complete. These gentlemen have done an excellent job and we are proud of their commitment to the City of Lebanon team and to the community.”
