I want to apply for pre-trial intervention, what do I do when I go to court?

Question Details:

I was charged with Breach of Trust at my job, $1000 or less, my first offense in my life. I want to apply for Pre-Trial intervention, since I qualify for it. My problem is, if I get accepted into the program, will that have an impact on my court hearing? Of course I'm going to plead guilty because that's what I am in this case, but I don't really know what exactly I'm supposed to do if I get PTI. Do I need a criminal attorney?  I'm in Greenville County, SC.
