Awaiaulu provides a mentorship training in translation that progresses in 2-year phases. Upon completion of a training phase, trainees can go on to train as trainers and then as mentors.

At the close of Translation Training Phase II, both trainers and all four trainees committed to another two year phase of mentorship training, each taking on a new level.
