Ten soldiers-turned-electric company apprentices became the first graduates of a training program set up by Southern Company at Fort Stewart, near Savannah, Ga.

The energy giant partnered with the U.S. Army to offer the three-week training course on base as part of the utility’s effort to recruit soldiers who are about to return to civilian life.

All 10 of the graduates received job offers from Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power.

The apprenticeship is part of Soldier for Life, an Army program designed to assist military service members and their families in the transition from active duty to the civilian job market.

Ten percent of the Southern Com­­­­pany system’s 26,000 employees are veterans or serve in the National Guard or Reserve.
