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.
RLI training provides you with interactive and collaborative learning sessions while you explore issues and discuss potential solutions with your fellow club and district Rotarians. Course methods include discussion groups, group challenges, and problemsolving sessions. Everyone participates and Rotarians learn from each other. A course notebook containing the topics and notes for each session, course outlines, agendas, faculty listings and more are provided to each student.
Generally, classes are limited to between 15 and 20 participants for each Part so there will be vigorous discussion and exchanges of ideas. However, the class size varies by District and will be displayed on the HOA-RLI registration page when you sign up.
Go to the HOA-RLI Website, www.hoa-rli.org, and select the RLI Events tab. From the list of courses, select the session you want to attend in your District and follow the steps for registration. Generally, all three Parts – I, II and III – are offered on the same day, so you should select the Part that you’re eligible for on that date. Tuition may be paid online at the time of registration (preferable) or by check on the day you attend.
