Monitoring Training Tips and Train the Trainer Sessions


Image of people in a training sessionIt is recommended that each local program have a train the trainer session prior to their initial (or annual) training for volunteer stream monitors. A train the trainer session not only helps to maintain uniformity of sampling methods among volunteer monitors who use Water Action Volunteers' stream monitoring protocols, but it allows you, as the local coordinator, to orient those who will be trainers to the training site and schedule. Contact Peggy Compton to set up a train the trainer session for your local program.

To support these train the trainer sessions and to provide refresher for those who have been trainers previously, some tips sheets have been developed for trainers. Use links at the right to access tips for training how to monitor biotic index, dissolved oxygen, habitat assessment, stream flow, and transparency.
