Training Program

When the COC has surplus funds (from donations and/or sponsorship), some of that surplus may be applied to reimbursing volunteers for relevant training (ie. first aid, outdoor leadership, bear safety, orienteering, etc). Any current member of the volunteer team may apply for training reimbursement - applications are reviewed by a committee headed up by our Training Coordinator.

  4. Approved training requests are sent back to the requesting member.
  5. Member enrolls in course, submits a copy of the invoice indicating total cost to the Training Coordinator.
  6. Upon passing the course, member must provide proof of a passing grade (transcript, printout, certificate, etc.)
