Mandatory Training

There are some training classes that are mandatory to ride on the rig in order to keep compliant with state standards. 

Here is a list of all the mandatory training and below that is a link to all the courses.  Most are online but there are a few that are in person.

Once completed please submit a copy via the form on the bottom of the page.

Make sure to keep a copy for your files as well. (It is recommended to keep an ongoing folder for all of the training you complete while on the corps)

We understand that this is a lot of training hours, however, by completing everything ahead of your swear-in date you can start volunteering on day one.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
