  2. Attend a weekly seminar.
  3. Have the opportunity to develop procedures, needed protocols, and data collection methods.

**KAC system managers will be in charge of teaching the weekly seminar, grading of the practicum students, recruiting tutors and training tutors.

**Students can register through the PSY 3570 practicum either as an Intermediate Practicum or Advanced Practicum student and request to work at KAC.   Or they can register as an independent study credit (1 credit hour = 4 hours at KAC/week).
