This section contains resources for FIRST Tech Challenge Volunteer training and development. Learn more about becoming an FIRST Tech Challenge Volunteer or view the complete listing of volunteer opportunities at FIRST. All Volunteers must be screened as part of the FIRST Youth Protection Program.
If you would like to Volunteer for any FIRST event, you must create a profile, be screened, and select events in the Volunteer Information Management System (VIMS).
Volunteers must apply to their role using the Volunteer Information Management System. After the volunteer has selected their role, FIRST Tech Challenge will send an email to the Volunteer with access to their training resources and certifications (when applicable). Emails will be sent twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This process will be used until further notice. Pending a system update scheduled for mid to late October, Volunteers will receive an email with this information upon application to the role. Each manual will be updated accordingly once this changeover is in effect. If you have applied for a role but have not received access to the training, please email FTCTrainingSupport@firstinspires.org.
