A two-session basic tutor training workshop is set for 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 26 and 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Elkins/Randolph YMCA in Elkins. There is no charge for the workshop and materials will be provided. Teaching experience is not required. Attendance at both sessions is necessary for completion of the training. There will be snacks Friday evening and lunch will be provided Saturday.
