Victory Electric Vice President of Operations Ryan Miller recently announced COLTON LEE, AUSTIN GOODER and TYLER TRENT have been promoted to third class linemen.
This achievement is another step to complete their journeyman lineman certifications. To become a journeyman, each lineman must have a combination of four years of experience and successfully pass exams covering material studied in four textbooks. For every textbook, there are 10 exams. There is also a final cumulative exam of all four textbooks. These three linemen have completed and passed their second textbook and the coinciding 10 exams, earning them their next class of certification.
“I’m glad to be moving on to the next step of my career as a lineman. A lot of hard work and experience goes into each step of becoming a journeyman,” Lee said. “This promotion was no exception.”
Although their studying and on-the-job learning are far from over, this promotion will allow the linemen to take on more challenging work while on job sites.
“I am eager for the opportunity to do more hot work with more complicated lines,” Gooder said. “This promotion will allow me to do that while I work toward earning my next goal.”
All three of the linemen agreed this promotion is just part of reaching their ultimate goal of achieving their journeymen certifications. Journeyman is the highest lineman classification, and becoming a journeyman lineman is a goal all linemen strive to attain in their career.
“It feels great to get the promotion and know I am completely done with another textbook,” Trent said. “It’s just another step closer to my journeyman.”
Congratulations Colton, Austin, and Tyler, and we look forward to your continued success!
