I've just received my invitation for the role specific training which entails a trip to London for a 4 hour session. This seems a little odd given that the majority of volunteers have already done the 3 day test event in November. I cannot envisage what else they could teach us.
I rang LOCOG and explained that we had already had the test event but they were adamant that I would still need to attend the RST. I also rang BF who tell me that there is no one in BF who is coordinating or even involved in Olympic volunteering, which I find hard to believe, surely someone in fencing has been consulted to determine what training is required.
Is there anyone on here who knows what's going on and can help the volunteers avoid this extra expense? Alternatively, have any of the other volunteers managed to get out of this?
