The Learning is certified on all levels offered (Beginning, Advanced, and Master level tutors) through the International Tutor Training Certification Program sponsored by the College Reading and Learning Association.
The purpose of the certification is to allow tutors to receive recognition and positive reinforcement for their successful work from an international organization. The certification helps set up a standard for the minimum skills and training a tutor needs to be successful. It also ensures on-going training through the tutoring experience. Upon completion of a level, the tutor will receive a certificate and the authorization to include this accomplishment on a resume.
Training involves many modalities including handbooks, in-services, videos, observations, evaluations, and case studies. Tutors spend approximately ten hours working through training activities each semester and twenty-five verified hours of tutoring for each level.
