Certified Instructor
Instructor Training that Emphasizes Interaction

Developed for educational or tutoring/mentoring institutions and departments of education initiating implementation of Study Technology within their organizations, Applied Scholastics offers a basic training lineup leading to Certified Instructor status.

This package is composed of four courses covering the fundamentals of Study Technology, practical communication skills, and the techniques of converting any curriculum or text into a fully flexible and differentiated learning model.
