Northwest Lineman College

Quanta acquired the Northwest Lineman College (NLC) in January of 2018 to further expand its commitment to training the industry’s workforce.

NLC is an accredited training facility in the United States, with four campuses across the country – and plans to build a fifth in North Carolina – offering specialized training across the electric power, pipeline, industrial and communications industries. NLC targets various and diverse hiring pools – and offers grants for those students needing financial assistance.
