Why is certification important?

Certification is accredited through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).

  • It provides recognition and positive reinforcement for your successful work from an international organization.
  • It sets a standard of skills and training for tutors.
  • It allows our program to certify all tutors who meet the criteria.

Levels of Certification

  • Level I (ACS 294) = Regular
  • Level II (ACS 394) = Advanced
  • Level III (ACS 494) = Master

Not only can this experience help you prepare for a career, but you can earn extra money to pay for your college expenses. The starting wage is $9.95/hour (effective January 1, 2022). When you complete the training courses and accumulate enough hours, you will become eligible for pay increases with each level of certification earned.
