ALERT: After careful consideration, we have made the decision to close Georgia Aquarium to public guests. We continue to closely monitor this ever-evolving situation around COVID-19 with the ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, volunteers and animals.

The Georgia Aquarium Team is comprised of approximately 600 staff and 1,100 volunteers; these enthusiastic and extraordinary people possess a wide variety of skills and talents, all necessary to make Georgia Aquarium run. With a team this vast, the Training Department supports these dedicated team members in being able to do their jobs competently and safely while providing the very best experience possible to over 2 million guests a year. The Training Programs Department provides training & professional development for all Georgia Aquarium departments.

The Training intern will focus on learning the fundamentals of running a corporate training program, as well as classroom management and facilitation skills. They will participate in classes in both a direct and digital format, assist with departmental administrative duties, learn the basics of an e-learning management system (LMS) all while working to develop their own training course which will be facilitated at the end of the internship.

Upon successful completion of the program, the intern will be educated in the fundamentals of Training & Development, best practices within the industry, and the important role this department plays within a large organization.
