Line Worker Apprenticeship Program

In conjunction with the Tennessee Valley Public Power Association, Georgia EMC conducts a comprehensive Line Worker Apprenticeship Training Program for EMC line employees who are working to become senior “journeyman linemen.” This comprehensive program consists of four correspondence units and three on-site laboratory sessions. It usually takes two to three years to complete the apprenticeship program.
