The innovative three-week program will provide up to eight participants, of any age, real-world training and experiences. At the end of the program, top interns who shine the brightest will have the potential to be placed into full-time positions at one of four Capitol Lighting locations in Florida.
Participants will also have the chance to receive industry certifications such as the Lighting Associate (LA) program by the American Lighting Association (ALA), which is approved for CEU credit by the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED).
