Students may have the opportunity to participate in field trips, job shadowing and/or volunteering experiences while at TRC. Additionally, all students will have the opportunity to have at least two work-related community experiences. These will happen when their Area of Study coursework has been successfully completed.
The Practicum will allow students to receive on-the-job experience with a community business partner. This may or may not be in their chosen Area of Study. It is designed to assist the student in gaining general work skills needed to be successful in a place of employment as well as to aid in finalizing their employment plans, all before moving into the required Internship.
The Internship will allow students to put into practice all the skills they have learned in their TRC classes and is designed to provide employment experience. The placement is the culmination of all classes taken in an Area of Study and will be with a community business partner in the student’s chosen Area of Study. Once a student successfully completes an Internship, he/she will have completed all Area of Study requirements and can apply for graduation.
