CLE Trainers

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

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 the ECC District. The Governor approves those to be certified as Certified Trainers based on the candidates’ experience. The term for Certified Trainers is 3 years. It is important that all Certified Trainers commit to serving their Division for 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. Interested members will submit their names and qualifications, using the approved application form. Access to the form will be supplied as part of the notice.

Please note: although the qualifications stipulate that you should be a Past Lieutenant Governor to be a Certified Trainer, that is not necessarily the case. Past Presidents who are interested may also apply.

Anyone who is interested should review the qualifications to determine if they have these skills and abilities. The additional commitment that is expected is that Trainers will complete the annual on-line Trainers reports and evaluations following their training sessions.
