ORWG MS Teams ES Training/Support Channels

ORWG has an MS Teams site, ORWG - ES Training, which is the repository of ES training and support materials for ORWG ES personnel to use to support their training and reference material needs.  There are individual channels for each qualification and some consolidated areas for categories such as Air Crew.  This is a work in progress and some channels have not been populated and others are being added to as new materials are created/obtained.
