Line Installers and Cable Splicers
The U.S. Department of Labor anticipates that employment for line installers and cable splicers will experience little change through 2018. Despite this prediction, there should be many opportunities for line installers and cable splicers—especially in the electric power industry. An expected wave of retirements, the need for preventive maintenance on telecommunications and electrical infrastructure, and increasing demand for electricity and telecommunications services from a growing population will create a need for workers in the field.
