The Story of the Wood Walkers

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. ┬áThe 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. ┬áThere 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?
