What is an Externship*?

Your Edge Tech Academy education starts with what you learn in the classroom, but it’s important for you to understand how that knowledge translates once you are on the job. Our externship opportunities allow you to take what you’ve learned and translate it to professional settings with on-the-job training in a work-like setting. You’ll have professional mentors there to help guide you through professional and skills development as you move toward obtaining your degree.

*Externship courses are not available with every program.

How Do Edge Tech Academy Externships Work?

If you have chosen a program that offers an externship opportunity, one of our Edge Tech Academy Externship Coordinators will help you plan for your placement. Together, you and your coordinator will discuss your career goals and interests, and they will help match you to the right partner that will help facilitate your continued growth. As you go through your externship, you will submit weekly reports outlining your attendance, activities and your learning. You will receive feedback on your performance halfway through and upon completion of your externship.


Let us help you start on the path to building your dream career. Get in touch with our team to find the program what’s best for you and take the steps to get started.
