Well trained volunteers improve their community’s health and save lives.
All MRC volunteer training is free and available in-classroom, online, video conference, and web conference delivery methods. Some trainings provided continuing education credits.
MRC Orientation is required for ALL volunteers, but additional training requirements may vary by unit. Training topics include emergency management systems, mental health preparedness, bioterrorism response, disease investigation, first aid and CPR. There are advanced training requirements to serve as mass fatality response, epidemiology investigation, community health worker and vaccination team members. Statewide MRC trainings are offered via web or video conference, featuring recognized subject matter experts on a variety of topics pertinent to the MRC.
