James Bond? Navy Seals? Nope, this is Student Training at Intramural-Recreational Sports. We might be all about fun and games (literally), but we are all business when it comes to your safety.
We take great pride in training students to ensure the safety of patrons and staff, to efficiently run the operation of programs and facilities, to offer exceptional customer service and to do it all with a smile on their face.
You might wonder - how do they do it? Well, aside from having the advantage of working with UVA students who already come to the table with an incredible toolkit of skills, we have created a customized three-day Student Employment Training program to expand the skills for all student supervisors who work in programs and facilities.
The training topics and objectives are organized to provide student staff with the tools, skills and knowledge to provide uncompromised safety and customer service to the university community.
The topics and objectives addressed this year included:
- Fire safety training
- Blood borne pathogen training
- Emergency preparedness
- CPR, AED, and First Aid training
- Team Building Programs
- Effective Communication
And if that wasn’t enough, we wrapped it up with customer service skills, PCI data security compliance standards and computer software training.
As Charles Eames once said, “Take your pleasures seriously.” You can bet we do.
