Training at ZSE is done with Mentors/Instructors.
Note: Observers need to follow the process outlined in the S1 Minor Syllabus before being allowed to request training.
Watch a video tutorial on requesting training here: https://youtu.be/WB5a-gtYidk
Unless otherwise indicated, all dates/times on the website should be based on the timezone you set in your profile.
As illustrated in the above video, follow these steps to request training:
Until your request is accepted, the time block will appear only on your "My Schedule"/"Request Training" page, where you can remove it if needed. Your training request will NOT show up on the home page or Master Schedule until accepted.
When your training request is accepted, you will receive an email. The block will then change color and appear on the home page and Master Schedule.
Note: If your accepted session is adjacent in time or overlaps with another one, it may not show up on the home page schedule, but should appear on the Master Schedule.
Tips for getting more requests accepted:
In addition to a staff page listing all open requests, an email is sent out to the training staff each night with a list of all open training requests. This means requesting at least a day in advance helps your request gets seen, and putting in many requests does not create email or notification noise for the staff.
Please remember that all INS/MTRs are volunteers, and if your training request is not accepted, keep requesting and an INS/MTR should eventually pick one up. As always, if you ever have any questions, feel free to email our training department staff at [email protected]
