4-week work practicum or project
The unpaid Work Practicum normally takes place during the month following the last course of study. A Work Practicum will be available to students that have met the employability skills outcomes of the program.
Students with overall achievement below 70% or that have issues which could limit their internship placement will be offered real-world projects within the classroom environment in place of a Work Practicum.
MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
