Register for Training in Get Connected

Galaxy Digital offers the following types of trainings on the Get Connected platform.

Note that the agency manager training is for both agency managers and site managers, while all other trainings are for site managers only.

Note: An agency manager is someone who manages one or more agencies on a Get Connected site. A site manager manages the entire site--settings, spotlights, branding, user data, notifications, reports, etc. Most site managers are also agency managers.

Training for Agency Managers

Prerequisites: None

Description: Agency training is recommended for both site managers and agency managers. In addition to showing the "Get Connected experience" from a volunteer's perspective, it shows how to sign an agency up for the site, create an agency account, post needs and events, add photos, and approve volunteer hours.

As a site manager, you should:

  • Attend an agency training as a prerequisite to all site-manager trainings.
  • Reach out to your agency managers with training-registration information. It's important that they register for and attend an agency training before posting needs and events.
