If your position has an associated handbook, you must read this prior to commencing your role. A hard copy will be provided by your Returning Officer (RO) and can be downloaded below. ECQ recommends you read your handbook before attempting the online training and assessment.
If you are working on election day, training includes a mandatory face-to-face briefing from the Polling Booth Supervisor before the polling booth opens. Supervisors and Second-in-Command (2ICs) may also be required to complete group-based, face to face training the week prior to election day.
