Homework Assignments

Below are links to homework assignments that prospective volunteers will complete during their Orientation Training (OT). Please contact the CRB Trainer with any questions, for help with the homework, or to schedule a video meeting with the CRB Trainer to get organized before you begin.
IMPORTANT: ***DO NOT start the homework until the CRB has provided you with your OT agenda. Use your OT agenda checklist to guide you through the homework. There are slight differences in what homework to do when depending on what version of OT you are taking, so follow the specific instructions provided to you in your agenda. Do not start early or work ahead.***
