The chapter began training its first class of 11 students in April 2005 and now has trained over 300 individuals. Our training is held at Windedale, near Round Top, in Fayette County as well as at other venues in our five-county region. Training sessions (a 40-hour course) for new members begin in January and are complete each year by May.  For the Class of 2020, training sessions are scheduled for Monday afternoons from 1 – 4 pm each week with the addition of four or five Saturday field days. Applications for the 2020 class are now open.  Class size is limited so please apply early.  Learn more and apply online.  (PHOTO: Graduation – Class of 2019 – April 2019)

Chapter membership meetings are held every odd numbered month on the third Saturday, 9 – 11 a.m. Typically these meetings are followed by a program open to the public.

We invite you to go through our website and look at some of the things we do. If you would be interested in joining us, please contact us for more information and to get application forms.
