The Training Committee wants to challenge you!

Online Registration is here! Check the calendar below for training session information. Click on the session that you want and find the registration link at the bottom of the description. It will take you to the registration form. Complete the form and submit--and you’re registered! You need to provide your name, iMIS number, Guiding branch that you lead, District, your phone number, and your email address. Watch the spelling of your email address as this is how your registration will be confirmed. And, your iMIS number is important as this is how the training will get entered into iMIS. All sessions will be offered at Guide Centre, 2188 Brownsea Ave NW, unless otherwise indicated.

Anytime you take training, you can receive one of our challenge crests. We still have lots of the 2016/2017 crests and there is a new one coming. Ask your trainer!!

Register early so we don’t cancel a training that you're interested in!



We are always willing to bring training to your District. Contact the training committee at training@calgarygirlguides.com to book a training day, evening or daytime session for your District.
Be sure to give about a month’s notice so the best trainers can be found for your sessions.

Do you know that there is a training subsidy available from Calgary Area for you to take Training that has a cost? This might include First Aid or any of the Provincial Training Events. Ask your District Commissioner for details or look on the Calgary Area website.


TRAINING SESSION DESCRIPTIONS


Safe Guide
Safe Guide compliance is part of all of our activities! That’s why it is a mandatory session for all Guiders within your first 6 months. This session is devoted to understanding our responsibility as Members of GGC in ensuring safety while managing risks in activities. We’ll explore the contents of the document – you don’t need to know it all . . . you just need to know what to look for and where to find it! This session is geared to assisting you with that!
OAL - Outdoor Activity Leadership
We offer sessions in all the OAL Residential Camping modules – Getting Outside, Leading, Planning, Food & Nutrition and Camp Life. These sessions will help you to plan exciting camping experiences for your girls. The Tent Camping modules are usually offered at an overnight tenting experience in the spring.
New Guider Training Days
The Calgary Area Training Committee offers 3 full day trainings for new Guiders and Guiders changing branches. The day includes a Safe Guide session for new Guiders. There is also an All About Your Branch session (Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders, or Rangers) and a session on Building Unit Guider Skills. Either or both of these sessions are beneficial to both new Guiders and Guiders who are moving to a different branch. The New Guider Training Days are offered in June, August and October.
