Disaster Relief Online Training

'DR 101' training is the introduction to Disaster Relief and introduction to evangelism in Disaster Relief. Beginning in 2021, level 1 training will take place online.

How online training works:

1. Register online and pay for your training. This includes selecting an in-person training date. The fee covers online training, background check, and in-person 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, take the exam, and complete the evangelism assignment.

The online training is broken into 6 videos: 4 short videos for DR101 and Evangelism (EV101) and (EV102). These courses will ONLY be offered online and are required BEFORE you do your in-person unit training. The online training can be done anytime prior to unit training. Once you complete the online training videos you will take a short, online quiz covering the information you have learned. Next, complete the evangelism assignment and return it to John Heading via email: jheading@scbo.org.

3. After completing steps 1 & 2 please fill out the Background Check Information Sheet (which is found at the bottom of this page) and email it to John Heading jheading@scbo.org) and Ohio DR will process your background check. Once this final step is complete, you will receive your Ohio Disaster Relief ID card and yellow hat. You are now ready for the in-person unit training date selected in step 1.

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 jheading@scbo.org.
