FAQs - classes

There are three full-day classes in the curriculum, titled Part I, Part II and Part III, and each Part consists of six segments or modules. Each district sets the times and places for its RLI sessions; typically, classes are held on Saturdays and will begin at 8:30-9:00 a.m. and end by 4:00 p.m. A participant must complete all three Parts, preferably in sequence, to graduate from the Institute.


The cost is $50 per session, so the cost to complete all three Parts is $150. This fee covers the costs of course materials, facility and equipment rentals, lunch, coffee breaks, etc. Your district or club may pay part or all of your RLI tuition. You should ask your club president or District leaders if assistance is provided. Participants should expect to pay a portion of the fees, however, as assistance may not be available for all Parts.

No. If you cannot complete all three Parts in one Rotary Year, you can finish later. You can basically work at your own pace. You should complete the three Parts in sequence, if possible; however, occasionally participants may be scheduled out of sequence so as to create larger classes for more interactive sessions and better small group discussions.
