Consider a Georgia Power internship. Internships offer flexibility for high-school students to develop practical skills and apply on-the-job experience. Applications open each January for summer employment. High school graduates are eligible to apply for an eight-week summer internship to experience what it's like to work at Georgia Power as an Apprentice Lineworker. Successful interns can earn scholarships to complete required training at a TCSG campus and earn their Electrical Lineworker Apprentice Certification (ELAC). Fulltime employment opportunities may be available for students earning the ELAC.
