For general trainings, we will add new dates as demand dictates so we are taking waitlist requests for anyone who needs training (Treasurer's, OAL, New Guider training) but can’t attend on the above dates. (If you previously requested to be waitlisted and wish to take the above courses, please let the office know by email).
If you wish to take a future course, fill out the registration form and send in to register your waitlist request. We can’t add training dates if we don’t know who needs it.
If you have any questions about training please contact the training email.

Something else to consider for this year
TOD- Training on Demand for Guiders
Training is test driving a new idea (minimum of 6 participants)
What do you want to learn? How can we help you?
This is a perfect opportunity to add a training component to your District meeting! Or join with a neighbouring District for an event.
Training will keep an additional record of hours of training per District and the trainers will offer to be your staff for your District Guider year end closing if you have the best hour per Guider ratio. As there is no budget for this, we will cook and clean but the District will need to provide the ingredients. Negotiable within reason.
