How to Apply for the Lineworker Program

In addition to applying and being accepted to LCC, you must also apply to the Lineworker Program as well. In order to receive an application to the Lineworker program, you must attend one of our mandatory information sessions. You will receive an application for our program at the information session. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO OBTAIN AN APPLICATION TO THE LINEWORKER PROGRAM.

We have concluded the information session period for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please feel free to fill out and submit a Request for Information by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. This will then automatically enter you into our database for the 2022-23 academic year. Once you are added to the database, you will receive an initial email with attachments that explain our program, how to apply and a timeline of events.
