Over the course of your two day training you will have the opportunity to hear from two highly qualified, professional trainers specializing in ESL. You will learn in both large and small group settings.  At the end of the two-day training, you will walk away with a Certificate of Completion as well as a binder of resources to refer to over and over as you embark on your goal to be a volunteer tutor. Both days must be completed in order to be certified and receive the training binder. We look forward to meeting you in an up coming training.
