Training for 2020 Season

Training is for ANFFLA volunteers is held once a year, usually in May.  New members have 6 hours of Class Training plus an In-Tower Training.  Returning, active lookouts have one “reconnect” training class to attend.  Please see below for details.

New Volunteer Training

Each Spring we offer training for new volunteers.  To accommodate schedules, there are two options for our New Volunteer classes.  One is an all-day, Saturday class.  The other is option is split into two evenings.  You need only to attend the all day class OR the two-evening classes.

 

Option 1 – All Day

  • One all-day class offered once during training each Spring

Option 2 – Two Evenings

  • Two evenings, each with a 3 hour class offered  each Spring

If you choose this option you must attend BOTH classes to qualify for In-Tower Training.

    In-Tower Training

    • This will be scheduled at the end of your in class training.

    You must complete one of the two training class options BEFORE you can schedule your In-Tower Training.
