This workshop was created as a mentoring skill development program in response to the need for formalized education to enhance the skills of those mentoring instructor candidates. The mentor training can be completed as either an in-person or online course. In order to supervise an instructor-in-training through the practice teaching hours required for certification eligibility, you must currently hold at least the level of certification the candidate is pursuing if not higher. You must also be an instructor in good standing at the time the hours are completed in order for the instructor candidate to receive credit for the hours. The mentor training is not required to supervise instructor candidates, though it is highly recommended to support candidate success rates.
