Online course for community workers

News flash

The Fall 2019 edition of our online course has sold out! We hope to offer the course again in 2020 - watch this space or sign up for CLEO Connect updates.

Do your clients ask you for help with legal questions? Do they ask where they can get information about their rights at work or problems with their landlord? If so, then this 8-week online course offered by CLEO will give you skills and confidence to help you help your clients. Our fall edition of the course starts on September 30, 2019.

Here is some feedback we received from the spring 2019 edition of the course:

  • 100% of learners said they felt more confident helping people with legal problems
  • 100% of learners would recommend it to colleagues
  • 100% of learners gave the course a 4 or 5-star rating

As a course participant, you will watch a series of short, engaging video clips that explore the role of front-line staff and community workers in helping people with legal problems and offer tools for providing reliable legal information and legal referrals. You will complete short assignments and receive feedback from an instructor.

Upon completion, CLEO will send you a certificate as a Legal Information and Referral Specialist.

In addition to our online course, CLEO also offers in person and webinar training on how to find good legal information. View one of our sample webinars for library staff.
