Certification Communities

Wilson Reading System® (WRS) Level I Certification is offered to individuals through Certification Communities located across the country, dependent on trainer availability.

If your school or district is interested in certification for a group of educators, please explore our School & District Implementation option.

Enrollment in WRS Level I Certification will be on hold December 21, 2017 – July 2018 while we update the course for the new Wilson Reading System 4th Edition.
