Michael Fugle, an employee at Glacier Electric Cooperative since 2015, has successfully completed one of the world’s most comprehensive training programs for power line personnel.
The Merchant Job Training and Safety Program is administered to line personal in 40 states.
Fugle and the support staff at Glacier Electric can be proud of their accomplishment. Each utility has an acting training coordinator assisting their trainees by administering “closed book” testing. The coordinators manage their own people throughout the training process from rules set by the MJTS and the statewide association people.
GEC currently has five apprentice lineman who are working on completing the program behind Fugle.
Congratulations to Michael Fugle, who can look forward to a very rewarding lifelong occupation.
