Volunteer Coach Training Schedules

Volunteers are required to attend a Part 1 and Part 2 training session. The training sessions are offered online and in person organized by geographical region. They are delivered in a relaxed, workshop-style format. For more information on the role of Volunteer Coach, visit the Become a Volunteer page. Volunteers will mailed a Volunteer Handbook, with more information about the program and volunteering, once they have completed their training.
