International Tutor Program Certification (ITPC)

Since March 1989, over 1000 college and university tutorial programs in the United States and Canada have received tutor training certification through the College Reading and Learning Association’s International Tutor Certification Program (ITCP). St. Norbert’s tutoring program has been certified since 1996. To maintain our certification the majority of our tutors must complete certification requirements.

The purpose of this training program is twofold. First, it provides recognition and positive reinforcement for tutors’ successful work from an international organization. Second, its certification process sets a standard of skills and training for tutors. Tutors who complete this training tend to have a broader set of skills and a higher level of confidence in the tutoring setting. In recognition of this added expertise and commitment, certified tutors are paid at a higher rate than non-certified tutors. Certification may be included in resumes and graduate school applications.

CRLA’s ITCP has been endorsed by the National Association for Developmental Education, Commission XVI of the American College Personnel Association, the American Council of Developmental Education Associations and the National Tutoring Association.

Your Certification
You must complete the handbook review and the “Getting Started & Socratic Method” DVD before you may have students assigned to you. To receive Level I Certification, you must complete 10 modules of training and 25 hours of tutoring. Training can be satisfied several different ways: group, individual, or video. If training times are not fitting your schedule, you may make individual appointments for most training. Sometimes other classes or workshops can be substituted for specific modules.

Tutors are expected to participate in training each semester regardless of level of certification.
