We are REC – a podcast series produced in partnership with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.

We recorded today’s episode via Zoom with Foreman, Tim Campbell and Will Jordan, Journeyman for Rappahannock Electric Cooperative to learn about a day in the life of a lineman.

Tim walked us through the different crews, the responsibilities and told us a bit about his history with REC. Will shared why he chose this career and explained the different steps an apprentice lineman must complete on his way to becoming fully certified & trained.
