Welcome, Interns.

Let's sus out all these details, shall we?

Training Overview

Here's the thing: training participation is technically optional, since not completing any training has no impact on your current internship

But, if you want to do another, future internship with VFC—or take advantage of other VFC programming—there's only one rule.  

The golden rule: you must complete the training minimum in order to do future internships.

So how does that work? Training is tracked using points. You’ll collect points for any training you complete from the VFC Virtual Training Library this semester, and those points unlock rewards, which are outlined in the Points & Rewards section below. 

Let's say it again. Without the minimum collection of points, VFC will not fund a future internship.

Even if you don’t think training is for you, we recommend that you at least check out the Welcome & HOW TO course on Docebo, so you understand what you might be missing out on if you choose not to participate.

If this isn’t your first time as a VFC-funded intern, please be aware that there is a mid-semester deadline to collect points for a Fall 2024 internship. Make sure you check out the most up-to-date deadlines and information!

Why do we no longer get LinkedIn Learning Licenses?

How are my training activities tracked?

With the exception of the Challenge Menu, your training activities are tracked by Docebo. You will be automatically awarded points for self-paced sessions, live session recordings or game plans that you submit, as well as for live sessions you attend. Be sure to read the description of each training activity for information on how many training points the activity is worth.

Where can I view my points?

View your points on Docebo homepage. Please note that points from Challenge Menu submissions are not automatically awarded; these points will be tracked by our team once a week (and on both deadline days). 

Remember: In order to be eligible for Fall 2024 funding, you must complete a minimum of 15 training points by June 26th, 2024.


I can no longer attend a live session that I signed up for. Now what?

Switch sessions (if you’d prefer to attend another session) or un-enroll from the live session entirely. Use the middle button on the top right hand side of your screen to select either of these options.  

I don’t really use my laptop. Can I access this on my phone?

Yes! Please download the Docebo app and learn from there. 

Where can I connect with other Interns?

The Slack Community space. 

What should I do if I have other questions?

Step 1: Carefully review the information presented on this page & the 'Welcome & HOW TO' course and see if your question is answered there

Step 2: If it is not, reach out to internship@ventureforcanada.ca. We will get back to you within 48 hours (excluding weekends)
