Cooperatives’ donation helps future lineworkers
LaGrange-based Diverse Power and Moultrie-based Colquitt Electric Membership Corp. (EMC) teamed up to provide a pole trailer to the South Georgia Technical College Electrical Lineworker program in Americus recently. The trailer donation was featured in the September 2019 edition of the Georgia Magazine.
Colquitt EMC donated the pole trailer, which was refurbished and painted by Diverse Power before it was given to the college. The trailer will now be utilized to train future lineworkers to earn Class B Commercial driver’s licenses. South Georgia Technical College was the first technical college in Georgia to offer the eight-week Electrical Lineworker’s training program in partnership with Electric Membership Cooperatives, Georgia Power Company, and other power suppliers. South Georgia Tech also has on-campus housing for students and offers the “complete college experience.”
