Welcome volunteers to the 2022 Recorder Training Resources.
We are thrilled for your enthusiastic involvement. This page assembles all the materials you will need to get started recording in 2022.
We are holding the Recorder Training as a hybrid course, meaning both online and in-person. New trainees will begin by completing the online portion, which is divided into 5 units. After successful completion of this part of the course, trainees will advance to the in-person fieldwork component, comprised of 4 full days of fieldwork. Only after completing all 5 online units and 4 field training days will trainees be considered "graduated" as full-fledged recorders.
New Recording Recruits - Start with this year's YouTube training videos, conveniently compiled into one playlist. Each video constitutes one course unit, and completing each unit also entails filling out and submitting its associated assignment. For your review, this page also includes the Recorder Training Powerpoint Presentation featured in the videos. Be sure also to review the additional materials and field forms, towards the bottom of the page. Assigments are also found below the Powerpoint slides.
