PATRICK COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Patrick & Henry Community College is partnering with Wytheville Community College to offer a new course for students.

The 14-week power line training class will offer power industry fundamentals and the skills needed to obtain power line worker credentials.

Students will also receive a commercial driver’s license. A high school diploma or GED is not required to take the course.

“There’s a huge demand for power line workers,” said Rhonda Hodges, Vice President for Workforce, Economic, and Community Development. “So, we try to meet not only our students’ and families’ needs, but also our employers’ needs and that’s the role of the community college.”

The first power line training class will start September 5 at the Patrick County campus.
