At the time of internship placement, second semester, dealerships/shops will conduct a criminal background check on students applying for placement. A satisfactory criminal background report is conditional for internship placement.
Issues affecting a background check may hinder a students’ participation in an internship program and may prevent a student from completing the program and/or securing a job upon graduation.
Students must be at least 18 years old to start the program.
