The 16-week program is expected to create a group of skilled lineworkers capable of filling the demand for workers in communities across North Carolina and South Carolina. Duke Energy said the new lineworker training program at Central Piedmont Community College will launch in the spring of 2023.
The lineworker program will be stationed at CPCC's Harper campus in southwest Charlotte. The partnership with Duke Energy seeks to develop "a pipeline of diverse, skilled and talented lineworkers by investing in the education and career development of local residents."
The Duke Energy-CPCC partnership is the first of its kind in Charlotte.
