Southeast Lineman Training Center presents a new series, “Elevated-the Story of the Wood Walkers”. This documentary is a closeup view of the journey to becoming a lineman apprentice, a modern-day cowboy, a wood walker. The road is the mentally and physically challenging 15 week Electrical Lineworker Program (ELP). Graduates can earn the right to
be part of an elite, highly-trained group of future American heroes – the ones that keep the power turned on for the rest of us, through the heat of the summer, the dead of winter and through every thunderstorm and natural disaster. There will be blood, sweat and tears, but completing the program will equip them for a foundation of a
rewarding, life-long career.
Not everyone makes it through, it takes true grit and a willingness to put it all on the line. And in that process, something bigger happens that isn’t measured by a GPA, we see individuals conquer their fears, set new goals for their lives and prove to themselves they have what it takes to be a Wood Walker…DO YOU?
