Skill Labs are online sessions designed for stewards to review and practise their skills over Zoom. Any steward can attend these drop-in sessions, which will occur regularly each month. Some sessions are components of full courses while others are standalone sessions. Each session will include a brief presentation on the topic with time for you to practise and refine your skills creating the ultimate steward simulation!
These interactive sessions require stewards to come prepared to engage in the session. We recommend that you join via a computer or tablet to get the most out of the experience.
Additional registration links for future sessions will be posted on this page as they become available.
