Learning CenterThe College Reading & Learning Association’s International Tutor Training Program Certification certifies post-secondary education tutor training programs in two-year and four-year colleges and universities. The Skyline College Learning Center recently received a three-year renewal and was recognized for the strength of its program.

This program is aligned with the CSU transferable LSKL 110 Tutor Training course offered each fall and spring for prospective tutors and students interested in teaching careers. Students who complete this course can apply to become peer tutors in the Learning Center and are also well-positioned to serve as supplemental instruction leaders. The LSKL 110 course and the CRLA certification are an important professional development opportunity for students that also provide them with experience as they transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

Starting in fall 2015, students completing the LSKL 110 course will receive Level I CRLA certification upon completion of the course as part of the expanded curriculum and increase in units from 1.0 to 1.5 units. Future plans include exploring UC transfer possibilities.
