This training will be delivered and facilitated online. You are expected to read text material, watch and react to videos, submit responses to discussion prompts and quizzes, and provide thoughtful feedback to other volunteers in the virtual classroom. A tutor trainer will be available to monitor, facilitate the course, and provide feedback as needed.  You have three weeks to complete this training.

Completion of all components is required to receive the Office of Education's Certificate of Completion.
