Conway Corp recently announced the promotion of Electric Department employees Blake Henderson and Kolt Weatherley to Apprentice Lineman 3.
The employees are enrolled in a four-year apprentice program to become journeyman linemen and metermen though the Missouri Public Utility Alliance. The program requires classroom, correspondence and hands-on training with monthly and annual exams on electric curriculum. They must attend hands-on immersion skills training workshops including pole climbing, pole top rescue and bucket truck training at the National Utility Industry Training Fund facilities in Kansas City.
“These guys have been valuable members of our department for years,” Electric Department Distribution System Manager Henry Mason said. “Going through this program is another example of their dedication to the company and our community.”
Both men began their careers with Conway Corp as a Groundman. Blake was hired in March 2017 and Kolt joined the company in August 2015.
