Linemen are electrical workers who install and maintain the distribution and transmission lines that carry power to your home. Lineman apprenticeship programs give people the opportunity to learn hands-on skills needed for a career as a lineman.
The average salary for an apprentice lineman is £23,400. Salaries vary due to benefits, company, experience, industry and location.
Apprentice linemen complete a multi-step training program. Pay increases are based on completion of each step of the training program. An entry-level apprentice lineman starts out making 60 per cent of a journeyman lineman’s wage.
After completing the apprenticeship training program and passing the journeyman lineman exam, the apprentice lineman is now a journeyman lineman. The average salary for a journeyman lineman with less than one year of experience is £25,350 to £43,875.
