PhotoVRAP volunteers attend an annual training workshop to receive a demonstration of monitoring protocols and sampling techniques and the calibration and use of water quality monitoring equipment. During the training, volunteers have an opportunity for hands-on use of the equipment and receive instruction in the collection of samples for laboratory analysis.

VRAP groups conduct sampling according to a prearranged sampling and analysis plan and VRAP protocols. VRAP staff aim to visit each group annually during a scheduled sampling event to verify that volunteers successfully follow the VRAP protocols. If necessary, volunteers are re-trained during the visit, and the group’s monitoring coordinator is notified of the result of the verification visit.
