Ohio Disaster Relief is moving Level 1 certification online. Level 1 training is the introduction to disaster relief and introduction to evangelism in disaster relief.
How the online training works:
1. Go online and pay for your training. This includes selecting an in-person training date. The fee covers the online training, background check and unit training. If you go on a deployment BEFORE the in-person training, you may do the in-person training in the field.
2. Watch the online training videos and take the exam and complete the evangelism assignment.
The online training has 4 short videos for DR101 and Evangelism (EV101) and (EV102). These courses will ONLY be offered online and are required BEFORE you do your unit training. The online training can be done anytime prior to unit training. Once you complete the online training you will take a short online quiz that covers the information in the videos. There's one quiz for the DR 101 course and 1 assignment for the evangelism. The quiz is an online quiz, but the evangelism assignment will be emailed to email@example.com.
3. So, you have registered for DR training, paid your training fees, completed the videos and exam/assignment and we will now complete your background check. Once all of this is completed, you will receive your Ohio DR ID card and yellow hat. You are now ready for unit training.
If you have to retrain because you have been out of DR for a very long time, you will go through the whole process.
If you want to cross train, you will register for a unit training and attend that unit training. You DO NOT need to complete Level 1 training again to cross train.
If you have questions, please contact John Heading, Ohio DR State Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manual & Forms: The manual for DR101 Involving Southern Baptists in Disaster Relief is available at the link at the bottom of this page. There are also forms that you will need to fill out. As of August 2021, the forms will be filled out when you arrive to training or before you leave on your first deployment. By the end of 2021, the forms will be completed online.
REMINDER: DR101 quiz and the EV101 & EV102 assignment must be completed BEFORE you come to the in-person training or before you can deploy.
