Training, Education & Safety

Keeping the nearly 6,000 employees of Georgia’s 41 EMCs safe on the job and their job performance at its best is the goal of Georgia EMC’s Training, Education & Safety Department. To do so, we provide and conduct a comprehensive curriculum of training programs year round.

Training Courses & Programs

We also offer collaborative training services to neighboring power companies and associations – such as our industry-recognized Line Worker Apprenticeship Program. For more details, please call our toll−free number at 800−226−6324.
