Duration and Absence

In general, the duration of the CMDR COE’s internship is no less than 3 (three) and no more than 6 (six) months. Changes are possible on a case-by-case basis, and depending on the availability of financial resources and the duration of specific projects.


Working hours for interns correspond to the official working hours for all CMDR COE Staff members – i.e. from 0800 until 1630, from Monday to Friday – 8 (eight) hours per day, 40 (forty) hours per week, with a half-an-hour (30 min) lunch break. Flexibility is possible upon the approval of the CMDR Director upon the recommendation of the direct supervisor. 


Working hours and official public holidays apply to interns the same way as to regular CMDR COE Staff members. Interns shall be entitled to 2 days of leave per month for each month served at the CMDR COE after completing 1 (one) month of their internship. Special rules apply to sick leave, particulalry related to COVID-19 

Unauthorised absences may result into the termination of the internship and preclude the intern from receiving an internship certificate and recommendation.
