Electronics Technician Practicum
The Work Practicum is the capstone component of this program and an integral pathway to transition students from the MITT learning environment to the workplace. Practicum is an unpaid, work integrated learning component of MITT technical training. It offers students the opportunity to gain industry-relevant experience and to build on their technical skills while increasing confidence, employability, and job readiness. Prerequisite: Successful completion of all preceding courses listed on this overview and any requirements listed on the practicum outline.
