COMTREA - A Place Where You can Learn and Grow!

COMTREA offers a wonderful intern program that is designed to give students supervised, practical experience within the profession. Students are able to integrate and synthesize theories and techniques learned in the classroom in a real work setting. We help develop personal qualities, characteristics, and behaviors of professionals, while promoting the transition from "trainee" to "professional practitioner."
