The SCL Program will apply to all journeyman linemen who meet the criteria as set forth in the requisites of the program. The SCLP will have an initial level designated as “Basic”, and will include successive levels designated “Advanced” and “Master”. The criteria for qualifying for this certificate will be successful completion of all listed courses and certifications included in the indicated level. The listed courses will derive from the schools, workshops, and classes provided by the JT&S Program or equivalents as designated and approved by the TJT&S Advisory Committee.

In 2018, JT&S rolled out our Safety Certified Lineman Program, which is meant to recognize our journeyman lineman that have shown a continuous commitment to safety through consistent participation in the most important areas of lineman safety.  We had over 40 initial Safety Certified Lineman recipients recognized in 2018 and we would like to recognize their accomplishment:
