Washington, D.C. (June 20, 2012) The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) is enhancing its legal immigration training courses with an innovative new learning tool: a self-directed online training course.
This first self-directed e-learning course called “Volunteers Helping Immigrants Become U.S. Citizens: The Naturalization Group Application Workshop ,” trains volunteers on the most effective ways they can help immigrants apply for U.S. citizenship.
“Naturalization is a cornerstone of immigrant integration,” said Maria M. Odom, executive director of CLINIC. ”Among many things, it creates an opportunity for volunteers in our welcoming communities to work with immigrants who are ready to take the meaningful step of applying for U.S. citizenship. This training is an essential tool for those dedicated volunteers.”
The self-directed course allows participants to complete the training on their own schedules and in the comfort of their offices or homes. This free course educates participants on the basics of
naturalization law and the group application workshop model. It also incorporates video testimonials, interactive graphics, as well as self-paced testing to affirm the knowledge gained from the course.
