Academic Skills Center earns CRLA re-certification

UW-Eau Claire's Academic Skills Center recently earned re-certification in the College Reading and Learning Association’s (CRLA) International Tutor Program Certification (ITPC). The lengthy application process was completed last summer, and the ASC is now certified through Nov. 30, 2015.
The purpose of the ITPC program is twofold. First, it provides recognition and positive reinforcement for tutors' successful work from an international organization, CRLA. Second, CRLA's tutor certification process sets an internationally accepted standard of skills and training for tutors.
ITPC has been endorsed by the Council of Learning Assistance and Developmental Education Associations, National Association for Developmental Education, and the Commission XVI of the American College Personnel Association. Other national organizations/programs that endorse CRLA's ITPC program for Tutor Training include the National College Learning Center Association, the Association for the Tutoring Profession and the National Center for Developmental Education.

Each certification level requires 10 hours of training and 25 hours of tutoring. For more information, please contact Patti See at or 715-836-4826.
