The 3A Instructor Certification workshop was designed to introduce 21st Century teaching techniques to instructors and familiarize them with the 3A Hospitality English Program (3A Hospitality English).The workshop includes three days of intensive training, with an online companion course / Online exam. Attendees create video demonstrating skills in real classrooms then upload for evaluation & feedback.
Instructors who finish the course receive a certificate of completion. Those who receive 80% or higher on their video submission receive 3A Certified Instructor status.
Any teacher can take the workshop. Although we focus on specific techniques for the 3A Hospitality English program, the skills learned can translate to any class you teach.
