Join Our Core Ops Instructor Cadre

Terry Harvey

Team Rubicon is seeking the next wave of Core Ops instructors to teach volunteers about basic strike team tasks.

Team Rubicon is looking to add capacity to its Core Ops instructor cadre. Since the inception of this training course in 2016, over 250 volunteers have completed Core Ops Training, gaining knowledge on the three essential strike team skills Team Rubicon employs in the disaster zone: debris management, expedient home repair, and muck outs.
