The term is also used for those who install and maintain telephone, telegraph, cable TV and more recently, fiber optic lines. Power linemen work on electrically energized (live) and de-energized (dead) power lines. The Electrical Line Worker program is one of the many trade school programs offered through the Mountain Institute JTED.
