Marshalltown Community College 

With the proliferation of wind farms in the Greenbelt area of Iowa, the time has never been more opportune for jobs in the utility sector. Right now, Marshalltown Community College is offering training in the areas of gas line technician, power line technician and utility technician. Jobs in this area can pay a mean average salary of up to $63,380. There is a demand for utility job workers in towns such as Eldora, Iowa Falls, Marshalltown, Grinnell, Tama and Conrad.

Utility technician job training

The utility technician track at Marshalltown and Ellsworth Community College will prepare students to work at an electric/gas utility, rural gas cooperative, municipal utility and utility construction contractor. The AAS degrees in either natural gas or powerline takes only two years to finish, and can yield up to $70,000 a year. With 400-500 utility technicians who will retire in Iowa in the next few years, students are almost guaranteed a job. Students can also opt to go for a diploma, which takes less time to finish, with the option of going back for more schooling later on. 

Gas Line Technician training

Students who are trained as gas line technicians will be prepared for jobs where they install, maintain and operate natural gas plastic and steel mains and related equipment to provide natural gas service to customers.

Power Line Technician training

The power line technician training at the Iowa Valley Community College District prepares students for work in construction, retirement, maintenance, replacement, repairs and operation of underground and overhead electric conductors, structures and related equipment.
