  • Attract attention and interest of different departments to stimulate interaction for the betterment of both departments such as working together on training.
  • 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.
  • Attract highly motivated tutors.
  • Increase wage rates per level in order to provide incentive for additional training and experience, as well as help with retention of tutors.
  • Honor tutors who have completed all requirements of your CRLA-certified tutor training program.
