Applied Studies Internship

Applied Studies Internship


Gain experience and enhance your skills

The Applied Studies Internship (ASI) program is a post-graduate program for students that want to jump start their careers. This 12-month paid internship allows you to gain high-level experience, access to cutting edge technology, and develop sought after skills employers are looking for. The ASI program combines classroom learning with an intensive hands on work place practicum.

The practicum provides you, as a graduate of a technical program, with the opportunity to enhance your skills by participating in an experiential workplace paid internship at the Army Learning Support Centre (ALSC) at 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown.

It’s a great stepping stone towards a more professional career. This is the perfect thing to do after graduating. It’s a great transition.
