In local news:

Beginning in January, job seekers in South Louisiana can take advantage of a new program designed to usher participants into electrical line maintenance careers in six months or less. The Certified Line Worker Training Program, sponsored in part by the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC), will equip students with specialized training and certification to secure employment as line helpers and apprentices. It includes classroom instruction paired with hands-on skills training and assessment. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible for employment and can expect to earn a salary of $33-40,000, with the potential to become senior-level line workers within six years, earning a base-level salary of $57,000.
