Disaster Training Academies

  • Denver - Disaster Training Academies
The Red Cross offers Disaster Training Academies in various communities within the Colorado & Wyoming Region. These academies provide a set of Red Cross volunteer trainings in a consolidated time-frame – usually one weekend – in order to:
  • Onboard new disaster volunteers with all the basic training they need to get started as a disaster volunteer.
  • Provide a track of higher-level trainings and exercises for more experienced Red Cross volunteers.
Pre-requisites: All attendees of the Disaster Academies should have completed an initial Red Cross volunteer application and onboarding prior to attending. However, some academies may offer an on-site application and registration process; please check with the Academy coordinator listed below.
