New Ranger Info, Training, & Shift Sign Up

Alphas (New Rangers)

Until you have attended a training, you are considered a Prospec­tive Ranger. Prospective Rangers attend a two hour training, where you will receive information about who Rangers are, what role they play in the Burning Man com­munity, and how to best serve the community’s needs. You will refine conflict mediation skills and get updates on information specific and relevant to the particular year. Once you have attended a Ranger training and have been approved to sign up for shifts, you are considered an Alpha Ranger. You are an Alpha until you go through a 4-hour mentor­ing process on during the event. Mentor shifts operate daily during each shift. Sign up for either training and once completed you may sign up for shifts.


ALL New & Returning Rangers


We will now be holding training’s on-site during the event on Thursday 6pm, Friday 1pm, Saturday 11am. You must sign up for a training in advance through sign up genius. If  you are working a shift anytime between 8pm Thursday thru 4pm Friday, you will receive early arrival and have already attended a training at a prior event. All Khakis are required to be on-site Thursday for the Khaki meeting. For all new Rangers (Alphas) working shifts from 4pm Friday through the end of the event will be required to attend a training before your first shift. Please read the Ranger manual before attending the event and bring a pen and a chair to the training.



Shift Sign Up 

If you have already created an account through sign up genius, please update your personal information first before signing up for shifts. We have added some new fields that will allow you to sign up for specific duties. Once you have updated your information, you may sign up for the available shifts. Please only sign up for the shifts you are qualified for. For example: if you have never been a Khaki (Lead Ranger) for a shift, do not sign up for a Khaki shift. Sign up for Dirt Ranger and if you are interested in becoming a Khaki, select KIT (Khaki In Training).
