We Offer Specialized Training Opportunities for Members

Utility employees have specialized jobs and unique training needs. FMPA’s training programs are designed to fit the needs of its members and provide resources at an affordable cost.

Lineworker Safety & Training

Linework is hazardous, and crews sometimes work around-the-clock to deliver reliable electricity to millions of Floridians. FMPA offers monthly interactive safety meetings and a semi-annual Lineman’s Roundtable to help keep lineworkers safe. These programs allow lineworkers to exchange ideas on safety and operating practices.

Powerline School from ECG

FMPA offers a PowerLine School through an alliance with Electric Cities of Georgia (ECG) to help create highly skilled lineworkers. The three-year program provides 6,000 hours of on-the-job training. Classes are held at an ECG training center. The facility is equipped with a classroom and a pole yard sporting overhead and underground training equipment to provide classwork and hands-on learning opportunities. The program is designed to help lineworkers progress through their careers.

FMPA provides affordable and high-quality training tailored to members’ needs.

Substation

FMPA’s Substation Training series provides courses designed for substation personnel and others who work in and around substations. The courses provide participants with in-depth instruction on substation-related topics and are tailored to the specific equipment of the attendee’s utilities.
