DartSmart Student Employer Training

DartSmart for Student Employers is a certificate training program designed to provide you with practical knowledge and skills required to effectively hire and manage student employees at Dartmouth College. The sessions introduce policies, laws, operating procedures, and responsibilities of our student supervisors.

Become a Certified Student Employer

There are three tracks to becoming a certified student employer, depending upon the responsibilities one has:

  1. If you directly supervise student employees: complete the Core sessions and the Direct Supervisor sessions.
  2. If you provide administrative support for someone who directly supervises student employees (e.g. department admin for faculty who are supervising student employees): complete the Core sessions and the Admin Processing session.
  3. If you both directly supervise student employees and hire students using the PA SmartForm (PASF): complete all sessions.
