At the new campus, Applied Scholastics will be training teachers, corporate trainers, mentors, tutors and education consultants with Mr. Hubbard's unique and precise system of learning any subject. These services, which are designed to supplement existing educational training, include workshops and courses ranging from educational basics to advanced teaching strategies and methodologies.
