Harry "Chuck" Burnett

Harry “Chuck” Burnett began an almost forty year long career as a groundman, soon moving up to journeyman lineman, service crew foreman, troubleman, distribution operations technical specialist, and transmission/distribution training manager, before gaining his current position as program director/instructor of the Each Los Angeles Skills Center Powerline Mechanic Trainee Program.  Chuck has been actively involved in teaching, training, challenging, and mentoring groundmen, apprentices, and journeymen as well as his own peers and supervisors.  He was instrumental in launching a variety of training programs and courses and was such a dedicated teaching that at times he held both day and evening courses, while also coming in on Saturday to be available to those who desired further study or time to hone their pole climbing skills.
