If you enjoy public speaking and would like to tell people about safety around the rails, please visit the Operation Lifesaver Volunteer page to become a trained and certified Operation Lifesaver Presenter.
Presenter Certification at a Glance:
- Successfully complete the Presenter’s Certification Course, successfully give a 10-minute condensed Operation Lifesaver Adult Presentation, receive an acceptable rating from the Trainer and obtain a passing score on the Post-Course Test.
- After completing the Presenter’s Certification Course, a presenter must give their first full public presentation within 90 days. The presenter candidate must receive an acceptable rating from the assigned trainer or presenter to become officially certified. In some circumstances, additional training and more than one presentation and evaluation may be required beyond the 90-day period before the presenter can successfully complete the certification process.
- Presenters must fully understand and agree to abide by all general policies and procedures of OLI as stated in the Volunteer Application.
- Each Presenter must give a minimum of four (4) presentations a year to maintain certification. This minimum requirement may be waived under special circumstances with the written approval of the state coordinator. Presenters inactive for a period of twelve (12) months are subject to review and loss of certification by OLI.
Not comfortable with public speaking? That’s OK. Operation Lifesaver also needs non-speakers as Associates to staff booths and displays at fairs, keep inventory of educational materials, write newsletters and grants, plan and assist with events, help with clerical tasks, serve as fund raisers, schedule presentations, and other activities.
