Volunteer Training Schedule

Please check with the facility Volunteer Service Coordinator (VSC) regarding the status of volunteers for that particular facility.

Volunteer Training Enrollment

We have reinstated an enrollment form to sign up for a particular training session. Please use the form to enroll in a training session so we have a pretty good idea how many will be in attendance. Please refer to the training schedule for any changes to the training dates or venues. 

Sign Up for Volunteer Training

Requirements

  • New volunteers are required to complete the New Volunteer Training prior to volunteering. However, if you choose, you may attend a training before your application is submitted and approved for expediency. 
  • Returning volunteers are required to complete the Annual Refresher Training each calendar year.
  • Volunteers must stay for the entire training for the training requirement to be met.
  • New Volunteers: Once you complete the volunteer training, contact the facility VSC to schedule your facility orientation. 

Volunteer Training Dates (subject to change)

You may attend any session in any location that is most convenient for you. Be sure to enroll in a training session here.
