Since employers often attempt to hire people who not only trained for their open role, but who have also gained experience performing the role, Career Matrix’s Citizens Curricular Practical Training (CCPT) provides students enrolled in a job role focused training program internships which give them opportunities to gain experience implementing the skills they learned. Career Matrix’s CCPT program is designed to provide students with the ability to develop and expand their abilities to think critically about practicing the job skills they’re learning. It also extends principles integral to its established curriculum across all Career Matrix programs into a 16-week paid (full or part time) work experience.
