The Skyline College Learning Center has renewed their College Reading & Learning Association’s (CRLA) International Tutor Training Program Certification through May 2023.

Recertification requires an intensive application process resulting in a review of all aspects of the Learning Center’s training structure. Documentation of relevant materials, such as training agendas, orientation guidelines, observation forms, and interview structures were compiled, submitted, and evaluated for quality standards through CRLA’s recertification team.

Successful recertification was the result of long hours dedicated by Interim Learning Center Manager Chelssee De Barra and Instructional Aide II Christina Trujillo, assisted by LSKL 110: Tutoring and Practicum instructor Nina Floro.

In response to The Learning Center’s program, CRLA highlighted the following:

“This is a very nice program that provides a hybrid of course-based and online training that is available year-round to advance new hires. Of special note is that the training is conducted by both faculty and [tutoring] lab personnel.”

CRLA certification awards Skyline College Learning Center tutors with an internationally recognized certification that they can add to their resumes for future employment.
