English Wikipedia Training Program is an on-going training program on English Wikipedia. We're experimenting with a new model of training newbies on English Wikipedia. Shifting from the model of a regular Edit-a-thon, which generally introduces all the concepts in one go, in this program, ten to fifteen trainees will be trained for about a month on various aspects of English Wikipedia, in several online sessions. Each session will be about 1–3 hrs, depending on the training syllabus. Sessions will be scheduled such that there is sufficient time for the trainees to work on the topics from the previous session.

Each session will be facilitated by 1–2 trainers. Towards the end of the program, all the trainees will be called for editing sprint at some place. Finally, each participant upon completing the Wikipedia Adventure and making two hundred main-space edits with at least 10 points as per the following table along with a DYK credit, will be awarded a certificate of course completion by CIS-A2K. All this is in anticipation to make sure that the participants pass out with a sound knowledge of English Wikipedia, and be good editors. In view of that, the trainers will guide the participants all along fulfill the requirements without any time constraint.
