COMMONWEALTH Utilities Corp. Executive Director Gary Camacho said 21 CUC linesmen will participate in the Pacific Lineman Training Program in August and January.

The training, which is funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior-Office of Insular Affairs, was suspended after Typhoon Soudelor slammed into Saipan in Aug. 2015.

Camacho said the 21 linesmen who will undergo training represent 60 percent of CUC’s transmission, distribution, and engineering personnel.

The linesmen will include five from Rota and one from Tinian, Camacho said, adding that once the linesmen complete the training they will be certified by the U.S. Department of Labor.

“The training will enhance the skills of our linesmen,” he said. “We are pleased to know that the people of the CNMI continue to improve their knowledge.”

Camacho also expressed his appreciation to the U.S. Department of the Interior for its full support and Yap State Public Service Corporation general manager Faustino Yangmog for his collaboration in the program.

He said CUC will continue to train local people while working closely with its utility partners on Guam and other Pacific islands.

The training will allow CUC linesmen to use the latest technology and equipment in providing safe, consistent, and effective services to the community, Camacho said.

“We are looking forward to becoming a better utility,” he added.
