Training

Please visit the Training FAQ page for more information

Veterans who have Rangered 2 or more years, please note the new afternoon session start time of 1330.  Please arrive a bit early and be ready to get started.

Those new to Rangering (Prospective Rangers) and those who have Rangered only one year on playa must take the full Ranger Training.

Those coming for the full Training should arrive before 10am. We start promptly at 10am, break for lunch and will have several smaller breaks. Training will end by 5pm. Please bring lunch, water and snacks, chairs, and whatever else you’ll need to be comfortable. Be prepared to stay later for impromptu get togethers, BBQ’s, etc. Again, please do not schedule something else for 5pm, in case the training runs late. If you can’t make the whole training, you will need to plan to attend another one!

Training sessions for 2014.

More updates coming as dates and locations are confirmed.   Please note that if the training you’d like to attend is not yet listed, we are still working to lock down details. This list will be updated as information solidifies.
