COVID-19 Impacts:  AORS and our training partners are committed to delivering the quality training that our members and their staff need to provide the essential services their municipalities expect, safely and efficiently.

Wherever feasible, training programs are being adapted for online delivery.  These may be either as live webinars, scheduled on the dates noted below, or as prerecorded / self-paced modules that students can complete at their convenience.  AORS believes the networking, relationship building, and interaction between students and instructors that occur during in-person training are often as valuable as the course content.    So where possible, we’ve tried to incorporate these into the online sessions as well.

Not all training lends itself to online delivery, such as equipment operator or chainsaw safety training.  There may also be occasions when in-person training can be delivered to a small group, possibly as a hybrid of online and in-person.  Whenever in-person training is offered, we will do so in full compliance with public health guidelines or government directives on group gatherings, social distancing and disinfecting.
