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 Course Intersection Volunteers are required to pick up their safety vest, official shirt and gear. New volunteers are required to participate in a training whereas returning volunteers may opt for online training (available in early April). Gear pickup and training schedule details.
