Senior Instructor Certification

Overview

CVTA’s Senior Instructor Certification offers a second level of education for professional instructors. This level of training is designed to add additional teaching knowledge for CVTA certification and provides instructors with more advanced instruction tools to better serve their students. An instructor brings a unique combination of content knowledge and work experience when training students. Instructors are the lifeblood of our member schools and extremely valuable to producing quality trained drivers.

Our Senior Instructor Certification Level is comprised of 5 separate courses to help instructors develop their skills when working with trainees.

 

Certification includes the following courses:

 

Types of Assessment

This course provides a solid introduction to Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory, learning styles, different types of assessments, and four major assessment strategies that are effective in evaluating performance.

Time Management

Time management techniques are outlined in this course, providing insight into helping students and instructors develop an understanding of time management. Good time management will aid in both setting personal goals and increasing productivity.

Traditional and Alternative Assessments

Choosing an appropriate assessment type for a particular activity can be challenging. This course will help reduce this anxiety by providing a look at Bloom’s Taxonomy and a detailed examination of traditional and alternative assessments.

Standards, Goals, and Objectives

Effective college classroom planning requires the implementation and ongoing coordination of instructional goals and objectives that meet governmental and educational standards, all of which should integrate seamlessly with one another, as well as other elements of classroom planning, for effective learning.

Diversity Adaptations

There is strength in diversity…but the challenge for any instructor is in bringing out the best in all students, while using differences to enhance the learning experience. This course presents many tips for managing diversity in the classroom, techniques for positively impacting educational performance, and assistance in recognizing when correction is needed. Principles and concepts related to diversity adaptations can be applied to help meet the needs of at-risk students.
