Interested in becoming a Bluebonnet line worker intern?
The program, which began in 2018, focuses on hiring local candidates, including recent high school graduates
Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative offers line worker internship opportunities in order to hire and train the next generation of employees to master the difficult job.
The intern program, which began in 2018, focuses on hiring local candidates, including recent high school graduates. The program begins with six months of classroom instruction and field observation at Bluebonnet. There is an emphasis on safety — which is of utmost importance at the cooperative.
Interns receive technical instruction about line work, earn climbing certifications and obtain commercial driver licenses. After that, they begin as apprentices, training in the field alongside journeyman line workers. After four years — 672 hours of technical instruction and 8,000 hours of on-the-job learning — interns who successfully complete the program can become U.S. Department of Labor-certified journeyman line workers.
The program is part of the cooperative’s investment in the communities it serves. It also allows Bluebonnet to continue providing safe, reliable power to its members, now and in the future.
Applications will be available in late spring. Watch bluebonnet.coop and the cooperative’s social media for information about applications and when they will be accepted.
