Once you have completed the on-line module, you will be contacted to take part in a Zoom Q&A session to answer anything that seems confusing. Information from the Q&A session will also be used to improve the training.

 

Volunteer Training during the Covid Pandemic

Bingo sessions have been greatly reduced during the Covid pandemic, and because of this volunteer duties have also been reduced. Volunteer duties are currently focused at the entrance, but even the entrance is different. This optional training will give you a better understanding of what is involved in being a volunteer at the gaming centre during this pandemic.

1) All volunteers must have read the AODA document prior to starting the on-line training. AODA Link: AODA Document (English) / AODA Document (French)

2) Volunteers must be aware that to enter the gaming centre, they must be fully vaccinated (two weeks after last shot).

 

Volunteer Training (non-Covid)

Our two-step training program includes an on-line component (approx. 30 minutes) followed by "shadowing an experienced volunteer from your own charity" component. (Different accommodations will be made for charities with no experienced volunteers.)

Feedback has been that the online training was an easy process, easy to follow, and gave them a good indication of what to expect when they came in. They really liked having to shadow an experienced volunteer for their first time. The experienced volunteers wish they had the shadowing experience when they took the training because they were nervous and didn't have any hands on experience.

1) The trainee must read the AODA document prior to starting the online training. AODA Link: AODA Document (English) / AODA Document (French)

2) After trainees complete the online portion, you, as the bingo coordinator for your organization, will be notified that the they are now eligible to do the shadowing portion.

Documentation (forms, binders) at the gaming centre for the shadowing portion are available in the lobby.

This training has been temporarily suspended due to Covid-19 until volunteers are again scheduled for shifts, as the timing is unknown at this point.

 Feedback is most welcome and will help in improving the training.
