I am having audio problems on my end at the present time
Ed, you may want to disconnect from the computer audio and connect by calling in instead.
The computer audio is sometimes rough if your internet connection isn't great.
Will a document be sent out on how to do all of this or must I take detailed notes?
Yes- we will send detailed info
Are Educators the admins or our county coordinator - or both?
I am now on audio via phone
As I try to set up an account, I can't see a spot for the county.
Can there be only 1 person per county?
Who do we email our Admin info to., what email address?
Can you describe what it means to be the "county administrator"
Currently the volunteers just fill out a form and send to Larry to sign up for the training. Will that be a different process then?
Only one admin per county?
Do they have to do this training before each in person training?
Has there been discussion about a portion of this being paid via State funds as it is required by Ohio 4-H?
how often does a volunteer need to take this?
Is this cost in addition to the registration fee for Canter's Cave? Or will there be a reduced rate for the face-to-face portion now?
Will everyone be required to do this even if they already did "green injection" at face to face trainings? For s, that initial investment will be over $800.
Who decides if a "county coordinator" volunteer gets access? Is it automatic?
So do current instructors/volunteers have to take this, or only new volunteers trying to get certified?
So this is for NEW shooting sports instructors?? Do our current shooting sports volunteers that have already been through training need to do this training?
so is this just for new people? The others have had their "clover injection"
why do they need this for additional disciplines if they already had it?
If they want to do it in person rather than pay this extra fee, they still can? Or will this be the only option starting in Fall? Winter? Next year?
So if they go to advanced training or another discipline, they do this? Their previous face to face "green injection" does not count, correct?
Does NEW mean brand new instructors/volunteers or those getting a NEW certification?
So for this fall if they do the online, then is the rate reduced if they arrive Saturday AM and don't have the overnight?

I just want to clarify, if instructors don't get additional training, then they do not have to complete this training?
Would the "working with minors" module meet the 1.50 training for our shooting sports instructors?
Danielle M Combs
Will this training count towards level 2 certificate?
what is covered in the topics - would it be beneficial for the county educator to enroll
Is it $20 per course? Or $20 for all the modules?
So is this training for all current shooting sports instructors, or is this for anyone going to trainings moving forward?
If the county isn't paying for any volunteers, do we need to request codes?
I'm thinking I might ask my 4-H council to pay for my instructors to take it who have already completed training
Would it be beneficial for current volunteers to take this even if it's not required?
Does the system send an email if an announcement has been posted? Would there be a reason for instructors to login if they have already completed the course?

We do have a few "old school" instructors without computers. I'm guessing setting them up at the Extension Office for training or the library would be an option. When we are not quarantined. It will be an obstacle for some of them, just so we keep that in mind.
As a summary, This is for new instructor candidates or current instructors that want additional certifications? And this needs to be done before registering for State training (CantersCave ect?)
How long does it typically take to complete the course?
If they do the training online in fall, when do they come to the fall training so they don't have to duplicate the in-person?? And is their in-person training fee reduced if they arrive Saturday AM?

If people have internet issues, many of the county offices with OCIO have outside public internet access.
Our office has OCIO "OSU Wireless" internet and it doesn't even reach all of our office, let alone outside.
From the times I have attended, the schedule is pretty intense for the weekend training. It might be nice to spread out the weekend's material to slow the pace slightly and keep the training the same length.

Maybe that's just ours...I'm hearing others are in the same boat as Gwen. :-)
Maintaining the Friday night also would allow additional networking time.
will we a hard copy guide to our roles and roll out information for our advisors?
took meeting notes-- sending to Jeff.
I am guessing the initial email went to educators? I am an office associate, so our educator had forwarded the meeting invite today and asked me to attend.
just what I need :)
I am not
Thank you Larry and Jeff for all this information.
