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.

Training classes for the 2024 Season are now full.   Sign up to be notified when the training registration opens for next season.

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.
