The Fund offers several Multi-Member Training courses dedicated to inform school districts about management and safety topics in areas such as maintenance and operations, transportation, facilities, and more. During our trainings, we focus on prevention of losses and efficient resource management.

Typically, one member organization can request the training and serve as host for the course. Members from the surrounding areas are encouraged to participate. Multi-Member courses are available at no cost to Fund Members in Workers’ Compensation, Property, Auto, and/or Liability programs.
