This course trains an educator to administer and supervise Applied Scholastics courses using a checksheet, a breakthrough in self-paced, individualized instructional methodology. Developed by Mr. Hubbard as a route to achieving mastery in the subject being taught, this instructional delivery system results in students who are able to learn effectively and to apply what they learn, while moving through their courses of study individually. This enables the educator to reach every student in the classroom and to empower students and perpetuate positive learning attitudes.
The certificate is valid for one year. To attain permanent certification, the Professional Supervisor’s Course must be completed during that time or a recertification class and exam will be required.
