CLE Trainers

Advance­ments in tech­nol­o­gy now pro­vides the oppor­tu­ni­ty for every Cer­ti­fied Train­er to be ful­ly trained, at no cost or min­i­mal cost to the Dis­trict.

Using “GoToMeet­ing” tech­nol­o­gy, a 2020 “Club Lead­er­ship Edu­ca­tion Train the Train­er” ses­sion will be devel­oped and deliv­ered by DST Jim Steele and LG Train­ing Coor­di­na­tor Joanne Mur­ray. The train­ing will be fol­lowed by a full eval­u­a­tion that includes feed­back from the par­tic­i­pants, to deter­mine the effec­tive­ness of the deliv­ery method for use in the future.

Divi­sions with small geog­ra­phy require one train­er; divi­sions with larg­er geog­ra­phy will deter­mine the num­ber of train­ers required to deliv­er train­ing.


Cer­ti­fied Train­er  approval is over­seen by Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al. KI approves those to be cer­ti­fied as Cer­ti­fied Train­ers based on the can­di­dates’ expe­ri­ence. The term for a Cer­ti­fied Train­ers is 3 years. It is impor­tant that all Cer­ti­fied Train­ers com­mit to serv­ing their Divi­sion for the three years. Train­ers need to be trained once in their three-year term, pri­or to deliv­er­ing their first ses­sion.

A notice will be sent to every Divi­sion regard­ing the cur­rent open­ings for Cer­ti­fied Train­ers for the next three-year term to deliv­er train­ing in 2020,2021 and 2022. Inter­est­ed mem­bers will sub­mit their names and qual­i­fi­ca­tions as out­lined by Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al, to their Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nors, who will then for­ward the list to the Dis­trict Office.
