Become a Presenter
Operation Lifesaver Presenters are committed to sharing their knowledge through rail safety education programs and are comfortable speaking in front of people. If that sounds like you, contact your State Coordinator to find out about becoming a trained, certified Presenter in your area.
Presenter Certification Requirements:
- Complete the Presenter's Certification Course (up to a day-and-a-half time commitment); give a successful 10-minute condensed Operation Lifesaver Adult Presentation; receive an acceptable rating from the Trainer and pass the Post-Course test.
- A Presenter must give their first full public presentation within 90 days of completing the Presenter's Certification Course and must receive an acceptable rating from the assigned trainer or Presenter to become officially certified. In certain cases, additional training, presentations and evaluations may be required beyond the 90-day period before the certification process can be completed.
- Presenters must fully understand and agree to abide by all OLI general policies and procedures as stated in the Volunteer Application.
- Each Presenter is required to give a minimum of four (4) presentations annually to maintain certification. Under special circumstances, this minimum requirement may be waived with written approval from 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.
