The powerline co-op created a great learning environment where I felt supported and encouraged to ask questions and seek learning opportunities. My supervisors met with me frequently to ensure the program was meeting my expectations and vice versa. Safety is the first priority, and I could see that from day one. By far the best group of people I’ve had the privilege to work with.
