I had a great experience at NLC Texas. I would not have been able to get an apprenticeship at my dream job without it. – Skyler Devin, ELP Graduate

Substation Technician Certification Program


STCP Binders Effective Distance-Learning Education

The Substation Technician Certification Program (STCP) is a distance-learning training program offered to electric utility and construction companies for the certification of their substation employees. This program is most commonly used as the curriculum component of apprenticeship leading to journeyman certification, and is ideal for adoption or endorsement by utility company associations and statewide organizations.

Enrollees must be employees of electric utility or construction companies and will earn Northwest Lineman College certification upon successful completion. The curriculum can be used to earn U.S. Department of Labor (or equivalent state agency) certification as well. See the catalog for more information.
