@vdandekar , welcome to HelpBerkeley.org and thanks very much for volunteering!
Our dispatchers have made you a driver, so now you can access the driver-only subcategories (subcats) on the website.
The next driver training sessions, on Zoom, are listed on this thread:
https://go.helpberkeley.org/t/new-driver-training-this-week/874. Can you reply to the thread and let us know which session you will attend?
Until then, here is a link to the core information required for drivers to ramp up:
(only clickable by drivers) . Let us know if you have any questions!
Thank you for again for volunteering your time with us, we’re glad to have you on board!
@vdandekar, thanks so much for volunteering! Will you be able to attend a driver orientation session at 11:00am this Sat 101/10?
How long is the Driver Orientation?
When I click on the training sessions link, it says that it’s private. I am also only able to volunteer on the weekends. Is that alright?
@vdandekar, it is about 75 minutes.
says that it’s private
I corrected that,
@vdandekar, you should be able to click on it now.
It is totally alright! Thanks very much for volunteering!
Ok. Unfortunately. I have a prior commitment at 11:30am that day, so I won’t be able to make it that day.
@MichelThouati I can make the Thursday training at 2pm. Would that be alright?
The next sessions are Tuesday at 11:00am and Tuesday at 4:00pm. But we could also schedule an 8pm session that day if that is easier.
Are you able to access the full schedule now?
[EDIT] I did not see your previous reply, sorry. Yes, Thursday 2:00pm is no problem–let’s do that. I will tag you on the new driver training thread.
Ok cool! I will mark Thursday @ 2pm in my calendar!
How do I fill out the Driver Schedule spreadsheet? Or will that be done for me?
@vdandekar, we will do it together during the Thursday meeting. But if you feel comfortable doing it on your own before then, feel free!
Red = do not schedule me
Pink = I’d rather not be scheduled
White = open for a run
Don’t forget to fill in how many times every 2 weeks you are willing to volunteer.
Thank you so much! I’m looking forward to the training. Is there a specific zoom link I need to access the meeting?
@vdandekar! The training zoom link will be posted shortly before the training. You were tagged by @MichelThouati on the driver training thread (you can access notifications that you’ve been tagged by clicking on your profile picture), but just in case you lose it, you can find the thread here:

All the info regarding the training can be found here. Thanks again so much for volunteering!
