This is where TBM Disasater Relief training begins.
The orientation (6:30-8:30 p.m. Friday) includes introduction and overview of the TBM Disaster Relief Ministries including the mission statement, history and brief overview of additional ministry opportunities within TBM. This orientation is required for all Disaster Relief volunteers and is required for renewal of credentials. This course is a pre-requisite for all other specialty training.
