TRAINING RESOURCES

Our biggest key to successful programs is our numerous volunteers. And the key to preparing and maintaining our volunteer base is the care we take in training our volunteers. Below is a list of current training materials, and useful documents we have made available online. Please feel free to download and use these for your reference. Please note, in most cases, volunteers must register for trainings in addition to volunteer roles.

VIRTUAL TRAININGS

Here is a list of all virtual trainings. The Learning Management System (LMS) we use is Canvas. Please refer to the “training” section of each volunteer posting to see what is required. 

20-30 minutes of winter alpine training videos will be sent to winter alpine volunteers in November. This will be required viewing before on-mountain training.
