Aaron Howell became a lineman in 1989 and has been in the industry for 30+ years. Aaron wanted to further his education by pursuing a business degree at Boise State College and it was during this time that it was suggested to Aaron and another student they start a private line school. Aaron and his two partners took the leap of faith and establish Northwest Lineman College. It opened in 1993. The first class consisted of 23 students. Since then the college has grown and other campus locations are now open. Aaron has also written two computer based program for line workers at Pacific Power and Light. Northwest Lineman college is growing leaps and bounds and so are Aaron’s accomplishments.
