SpanishPRO is an innovative system for learning vocational Spanish - like a PRO! Employees who can perform in both English and Spanish are in great demand. It’s more critical now than ever that companies and organizations bridge the language barrier. SpanishPRO's flexible curriculum emphasizes a more meaningful approach to language acquisition that is both affordable and immediately applicable to the job.


The Institute for Workforce Education, a national leader in workforce development products and training, and Instituto Cervantes, the leading ambassador for the Spanish language and culture, have teamed up to provide organizations the best of both worlds - workplace training expertise and the best Spanish language content. The Certified Workplace Language Instructor (CWLI) is SpanishPRO's certification system that is specifically designed to give companies' internal instructors, educational institutions' instructors and/or freelance instructors the knowledge, skills, and abilities to deliver workplace language instruction using the SpanishPRO curriculum.
