Training for the premier student work program is designed to fill the gap between what students learn in the academic classroom and the skills they need in the work place. As students work to build a resume through experiential learning in their student work positions they also have the opportunity to build workplace skills.
A training path allows students to develop skills based on work level. There are recommended training opportunities as they grow and develop in their positions and move up the level system from Level 1 trainee to Level 5 supervisors. Training is workshop based and online.
