Established in 2001 by the Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA), the Florida Lineman Competition is where public power lineworkers come together from all over the region to demonstrate their skill and knowledge in the craft of line work.

At the Competition, journeyman and apprentices can compete for professional recognition, attend training courses and practice essential skills in a safe environment.

For assistance with registration, please contact: info@flpublicpower.com

Important Note from the Master Judges: Poles treated with a “Penta” treatment will no longer be produced as of January 2022. As a result of this, the Florida Lineman Competition will be using a “DCOI” treated pole.
