Volunteer Training

A big part of making the volunteer experience a good one is being confident that you know what you are doing. It also helps the weekend go smoothly.

Many positions require advance training; however, some just have a "101" document that you should read in advance. Find your position below to determine the training requirements.

Course Intersection Team Training Schedule

All New Course Intersection Volunteers are required to participate in training, when they will also pick up their official shirt and safety vest. If you were a course intersection team volunteer in 2013, you are eligible to take the Returning Volunteer Online Training course. Schedule and details are HERE.
