Tutor Training

Luther College is Certified Level 1 from the College Reading & Learning Association’s (CRLA) International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC).

CRLA and ITTPC are proud to serve as a benchmark and standard for excellent tutor training programs around the globe.

As a CRLA Level 1 Certified Tutor, you will gain:

  • Secure greater student and faculty confidence and respect for tutorial staff and program.
  • Add completion of CRLA ITTPC Tutor Training Program certification to your resumes and will be able to talk about your training and experience in job interviews.
  • Transferability of CRLA Tutor Certification to other certifying colleges and universities. In other words, a tutor trained at Level I at one institution would be recognized at another.

CRLA tutor training is required for all CAE tutors. Tutor trainings are a total of ten hours for the semester. For the safety of all involved, tutor trainings will be a combination of in person, virtual, and asynchronous sessions.
