DynCorp International team members in Honduras recently welcomed its first set of interns to Soto Cano Air Base, giving them valuable “on-the-job” training as they continue to explore different career fields.
DI works with local schools in the community that select students to participate in the internship program. With DI team members’ supervision, interns are learning administrative and organizational skills as well as networking and learning about working in a professional environment. Certain students are also receiving special training in automotive technician skills.
“Through this internship program, the students are learning different automotive and clerical skills but more importantly they learn responsibility, timeliness, organization, communication skills and are able to practice speaking English,” said Arturo Buxo, DynCorp International project manager.
