Difficulty rating
Priority will be given to Winter School leader. For other participants, having attended at least one MITOC trip or training is required.

The training will be held in the MITOC office (W20-461), from 6pm to 7pm on December 5th.

This training is highly recommended for future winter leaders! If you cannot make it to this training, you check out the Dec 11th one.

At the end of the training, you will be able to run office hours.

Why becoming a desk worker?

  • To get more involved in MITOC, and help MITOCers get outside!
  • To be able to check out and return gear for you and your participants, avoiding the queue at the desk. You can even get office access and do that whenever you want.
  • To get desk credit that you can spend on rentals, gear, and MITOC shwag.

We will be covering rental policy and procedure, gear location in the office, difficult questions during desk, and anything/everything else pertaining to desk shifts.
