 "CRLA is a group of student-oriented professionals active in the fields of reading, learning assistance, developmental education, and tutorial services at the college/adult level. Inherently diverse in membership, CRLA's most vital function and its overall purpose is to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas, methods, and information to improve student learning and to facilitate the professional growth of its members. 


Members give practical application to their research and promote the implementation of innovative strategies to enhance student learning. In a spirit of community,members share their own successful experiences with others so that all may benefit." 




"Since March 1989, over 600 college and university tutoring programs in the United States and Canada have received tutor training certification through CRLA's International Tutor Certification Program (ITCP). 

The purpose of this program is two fold. First, it provides recognition and positive reinforcement for tutors' successful work. Second, the certification process sets standards for hiring, training, and evaluating tutors. 

The National Association for Developmental Education, Commission XVI of the American College Personnel Association, the American Council of Developmental Education Association, and the National Tutoring Association have endorsed the certification program. 


There are three levels of certification: Regular, Advanced, and Master. Ten hours of training and 25 hours of experience are required at each level. Institutions
may apply for certification at one, two, or three levels of training. After meeting the requirements for the initial certification for one year, CRLA offers a three-year renewal certification that can be followed by a five-year recertification." 


Note: CRLA certifies programs, not individual tutors. CRLA certifies that a particular tutor training program is qualified to issue CRLA certificates to individual tutors.
