One of the main reasons for the students to be involved in an internship is to develop and learn “employable skills” from local business people in a real work setting. The internship will also give the student a broad look and experience with the different careers in automotive industry. They will also have the opportunity to enhance their skills in the automotive careers they will be working in. The student will be required to fill out a job journal for each job performed during the internship. The student is responsible to keep track and fill out completely each job journal. These journals will be the responsibility of the student. There will be a binder in the back of the classroom to keep the journals in. A percentage of the total grade is based on these job journals. The student will also be required to submit a weekly report on canvas, this report along with the daily shop logs will be factored together to help determine the students grade.
