Work practicum

Qualifying students apply skills learned in the classroom, and develop new skills, during a six-week work practicum with a local business/employer.

To participate in the BAA Work Practicum (fall 2021 intake onward), students will be required to have a passing grade in each course, a cumulative program average of 65% and a minimum keyboarding speed of 50 words per minute with 97% accuracy.

Work practicum is a mandatory component of this program. Students must meet all program eligibility criteria to qualify for practicum. MITT does not guarantee practicum placements when students do not meet eligibility criteria (including having a valid co-op work permit) or when sufficient placements are not available. In such situations, MITT will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.

Continuous Program Improvement

MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
