Completing the L2L Certification
Northwest Vista College is dedicated to helping students and supporting them in their academic achievement. One way we do this is by having students build skills that will help them academically and in life. The NVC Learning to Lead program (L2L) is designed to provide FREE opportunities for NVC Students to develop and enhance personal, leadership and professional skills. Through this program, students are able to participate in both face-to-face as well as online trainings.
There are multiple steps to complete the L2L Tier 1 certification. Students are encouraged to begin working on the certification early in the semester, so as to be able to meet the deadline. Each step has more specific information s well as set deadlines for completion in the P.A.S.S. canvas course. Please refer back to the canvas module for those specific instructions. See more information about each step below.
