A Vital Part of CTP’s Vocational Training

After training, every student will be placed on a 4-week internship at a professional workplace. The internship experience has many benefits for students including the opportunity to:

  • Apply technical skills in a real business environment
  • Gain confidence in technical and interpersonal abilities
  • Develop new skills
  • Practice utilizing accommodations needed in a work setting
  • Give business people sponsoring internships the opportunity to evaluate the intern’s capabilities as an enthusiastic employee
