Campmasters must maintain their training by completing HOAC training every two years. There are two ways to complete this training: attend training at the HOAC Service Center or complete the training online. The 2014 training session at the Service Center was held in February.
Beginning in 2013, online training has become available. Review the Campmaster Handbook, then successfully complete the online test to satisfy the training expectation. Successful completion is considered 75% correct on the test. Insert your name at the test login and use "Campmaster" as the passcode to begin your test session.
