Detailed dates will be provided closer to the start day, but the program typically begins in June and ends in August.

What if my intern misses a class?

Please have your intern communicate in advance if they will be unable to attend a class. All classes will be recorded for them to go back and watch when they have time.

What if my intern is hired for longer than the length of program?

The ASI online classes will end in August, but they are welcome to rewatch any lessons that stood out to them on their intern portal. They will also have their ESP license until October 1.

Of course! When they enroll in our program, they automatically receive an invitation to attend the show.* *Please note that ASI will not cover any costs for the interns to attend the show.
