Interns also have access to numerous resources. Interns are provided with an individual furnished office at both office locations (Detroit Lakes, MN and Moorhead, MN), including access to a computer, phone, and distance technology[LB2] . Testing is typically conducted within the Intern’s office, however arrangements can be made for another space if this is needed. There is an array of testing kits and scoring software. Additional materials that are identified as a need can be purchased pending approval by the Training Director. Interns have access to administrative and IT support at both locations.
Interns matched with Solutions are expected to travel between two office locations in Detroit Lakes, MN and Moorhead, MN twice during the workweek. Interns are encouraged to use agency vehicles for travel between sites. In the event that an agency vehicle is unavailable, Interns are reimbursed for the travel at the Solutions rate of $.41 cents per mile.
