The third section, "Other Training Opportunities", moves from the opportunities that focus on the nine key skills areas to a sampling of organizations that offer training or directories of training for other skills that can be relevant to literacy practitioners.
The fourth section, "Accredited Training", gives an overview of accreditation opportunities for literacy practitioners. It includes detailed information about courses and programs offered through colleges and universities via distance education and online.
The Training Opportunities module of Community Literacy of Ontario's Lifelong Learning for Literacy Practitioners website provides invaluable information for literacy practitioners.
