The intern training program is a program that the Department of Technology offers to Sophomores and Juniors to come and learn about what the Department of Technology does. The program generally runs after school two days a week and the students are taught about networking, Windows desktop and server operating system installations, as well as software installation for the software used in the Auburn School District. Interns are taught troubleshooting and problem resolution and get very good experience in hands-on troubleshooting.
Once the semester of training is over, those interns that are interested and that performed well in the program, are generally offered an opportunity to work for the district over the summer. Summer work acts as a 2-month trial for the interns to be offered a potential after-school job during the upcoming school year. Many of the interns that have gone through the program have been very successful in getting jobs both during and after college.
