I have been a mentor for many years. Saebra gave me new knowledge and resources to better myself and be a better mentor for future mentees.- Melissa Child. Idaho, USA
This course was incredibly informative for both those starting the CTRI certification process and for mentors who want to learn more about the process. Saebra gives so many great tips and resources! I highly recommend this course! – Cindy L, Indiana, USA
I found this course to be extremely informative in a step by step progression of valuable content ready to apply to my mentoring program. I truly appreciate the foundation you have presented from your own ten years of working directly in this field.- Debra D.
Before taking this course, I was a little lost with what the “best” way to mentor is. Am I not providing enough resources? Am I not providing enough time? Do I have the best road map laid out for these mentees? But during this course all of those questions were answered and then some! Saebra was able to really break it down and show us what can work (or have worked for her) and then what has not worked for her during her 10 years in the industry. I would recommend this course to anyone in the EAAT industry!- Ashley A. Wisconsin, USA
The Mentor Boot Camp provides valuable information and tools to use in developing and fine tuning your Mentor skills. I highly recommend this for anyone thinking about mentoring or any Mentor who wants to improve and refine their approach. Thank you, Saebra!- Jan G. Arizona, U.S.A.
