Advanced Team Leader Training is offered for team leaders who have completed UMVIM Basic Team Leader Training and are in need of renewal (if it has been four or more years since participation in an UMVIM Team Leader Training session).
The classes include a review and sharing of ideas, followed by a specific area of concentration for the remainder of the session.
Advanced session topics include "Theology of Missions and Spiritual Formation of the Workteam", Budgeting, Fundraising and Documentation", "Cultural Sensitivity and Culture Shock", and "Conducting Successful Orientations."
Advanced Team Leader Training is required of team leaders in order to receive seed money offered through UMVIM, NC. Leaders must have taken an initial or refresher course within the four-year period prior to the trip.
As of January 2003, in order to receive seed money from UMVIM NCC,
the team leader will be required to attend the team leadership training
course offered by UMVIM, NCC. Leaders must have taken an initial
or refresher course within the four year period prior to the trip.
This program is designed to teach people what to do and what not to do as the first people allowed in a disaster area. Each team member has a specific job (leader, logistics person, base camp manager, etc.) and teams stay no more than 3 days at a time. All teams are self sufficient so that they are not an added burden to a suffering community. The class offers the opportunity to discuss and practice the early response procedures. Classes are offered upon request of a local church or District where there are 12 or more interested people.

a class at your local church.
