President Seals, right, with German students doing apprenticeships
Atlanta Technical College recently welcomed Students Alex Krasliovski, Cindy Kuhn, Julie Lange, and Carolin Langer from Germany for training at international companies in Metro Atlanta. The apprenticeship and exchange program is with the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and the Joachim Herz Foundation.
“Student apprenticeships are an increasingly popular and effective way to fill jobs for which there is a high demand in Georgia,” said Gretchen Corbin, TCSG. “As Georgia becomes home to more and more companies that operate internationally, it’s important that our present and future workforce have every opportunity to get a hands-on education.”
Atlanta Tech is also inviting students to apply for Herz Foundation internships. To participate, students must be enrolled in Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Care & Education, Barbering/Cosmetology, Electronics, Computer Information Systems, or Carpentry. Additionally, students must also have at least a 3.0 GPA. Each candidate must submit a nomination from faculty within their program of study, an application, a letter of introduction, and resume. The deadline to apply is April 21. Potential candidates will be interviewed by a panel of faculty and staff and will be selected by a point system.

Atlanta Technical College celebrated its 20th year of exchanging students, faculty and internship experiences with Felix-Fechenbach Berufskolleg in 2017 by welcoming a delegation from Detmond, Germany in January. The founder of the exchange, Norbert Fuhrmann said, “The exchange continues because of how we planned it. We started small, it grew, and it continues.”
