Training Calendar

Thank you for your interest in training opportunities through VOC's Outdoor Stewardship Institute (OSI).


COVID-19 Precautions: To do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19 (aka: the coronavirus), VOC has cancelled all March and April trainings. As we continue to monitor the situation and follow CDC and Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment (CDPHE) guidelines, there is a strong possibility that future events will also be affected. Please click here for up-to-date information on VOC's response to COVID-19, including on-training precautions and how you can join us in the effort to keep our trainings fun and safe for all. 

Committed VOC volunteers can earn up to $160 in waived training fees through the Steve Austin Training Scholarship.

Volunteers and employees from any organization can take advantage of our training courses held throughout Colorado. Organizations can also fill out a custom training request form or contact Dan Williams at 303-715-1010 ext. 117 to learn more about scheduling a custom training opportunity for your employees or volunteers in 2020.

You can also sign up for our e-newsletter and follow us on Facebook to be the first to know about new trainings.

Learn more about OSI here and/or purchase OSI training materials here.

Please note that training is not necessary to volunteer on a VOC project. Trained leaders will instruct volunteers regarding tools and techniques the day of the project.
