Information on General Training (Group Training)

Tokyo 2020 will offer general training (group training) programs to help Olympic and Paralympic volunteers gain the basic knowledge they need.

From late September, we will be sending notifications to the e-mail addresses registered in Step 2 of the application form, and each applicant will be required to attend one orientation session, which will last for approx. 3 hours.

*Overseas residents will participate in collective training in Japan just prior to the start of the Games. We plan to offer separate training for those volunteers during or after June 2020.
