This form should be printed out, completed, and kept in the new intern's file. This document should be used to create new training checklists for Volunteer Internships.


When new Intern is accepted into the Free Geek Internship program, several training modules need to be covered. It's the area coordinator's job to make certain new interns are trained. Some of the training can be done by other Free Geek employees or interns, but it's the area coordinator's responsibility to make certain that it gets done and that a complete hard copy of this document exists in the new intern's file.
