Advisor training and professional development are integral pieces of one’s job. They provide consistency and accuracy across units, motivation to develop and grow within one’s profession, and a desire to remain within the WSU system. All advisors are required to complete the Foundations of Advising training upon hire. Once completed, advisors work towards Level II certification. There will also be required refresher modules for all advisors. More information on this can be found at
