Thad France, AIEC’s manager of lineworker and apprentice development, recently completed all requirements to earn the Certified Loss Control Professional (CLCP) designation. This program is co-sponsored by NRECA and the National Utility Training and Safety Education Association (NUTSEA).

The purpose of the program is to provide an educational foundation for safety professionals, giving them the information and tools needed​ to be effective leaders of the safety function for their organization. By completing the requirements of the program, participants earn the CLCP credential, verifying they have achieved the benchmark of competency and commitment to safety in the electric industry.

The CLCP Program is a high-involvement blended learning experience that starts with an online program orientation at the beginning of the first seminar. Each of the four seminars in the program consists of online and in-person instruction, small group work, presentations, individual assignments and a final test.

In general, it takes approximately 2 1/2 years to complete all four seminars and a final project to earn the CLCP designation. In addition to weeklong, in-person seminars, online coursework consists of both live online modules and self-directed, on-demand content.

Congratulations to France for earning the CLCP designation and for continuing a culture of safety for current lineworkers, apprentices and linework students.
