Invasives Strike Force -- Training

Training Resources


The following on-line training materials are provided for volunteers who would like to self-study or for those who may be unable to attend a scheduled training session.

Please complete each stage in sequence.

The training materials are in a number of formats.  Some are streaming video from YouTube, and clicking on them will open a video player.  Slide presentations with sound are Flash Video, and require Flash Player.  Slide presentations are Java Applets that require the Java plug-in (Mac OS has Java built-in).  Other files are in PDF format that require the free Acrobat Reader plug-in.  See links below to obtain any of these necessary plug-ins.

A note: If you get a warning that 'to protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts', you can trust these Java Applets--they contain no viruses or malicious code (or even invasive plants!)
