I paid my new tutors this semester for training at their standard hourly rate ($11.25- pay is standardized at two levels at Goucher and my tutors are paid at Level 2). However, for next year, I have gotten a two-credit hour course approved so that they will get class credit and the pedagogy training/class will appear on their transcripts. This will be cheaper for us and strengthen their transcripts (especially if they want to be a TA in graduate school or become a teacher).
At all of my previous positions, we ran a tutor, SI leader, and peer mentor training class for new peer leaders. Students were then paid for continued meetings and trainings as returning tutors.

I hope you had a nice break.
Here, at my new institutions, tutors are not paid for training. They have the option of taking a class, which at least will give them 2 credits; however, very few new tutors take advantage of it, and it is not available to tutors who come on board later in the semester. Tutors who do not take the class, take what we call the Alternate training, with no pay but they get CRLA certified.
What does you training program look like? And do you pay your tutors for it?
