Become a trained OHAP Interviewer.
Take your first step to becoming an interviewer and sign up here.

Being interviewed is the first step to become an OHAP Interviewer. Here are some things to know:

  • The first step is to be interviewed yourself. All Interviewers must first be interviewed and trained.
  •  Prospective interviewers are required to complete on-line training and work with an OHAP mentor until they demonstrate their capacity to follow instructions and use technology.
  • Interviewers are trained and supported by the RPCV Oral History Archives Project Guide. They follow established oral history interviewing guidelines to ensure that highest quality standards are consistently applied.
  • Volunteers procure their own interviewing equipment and software (typically a laptop and Zoom license) and cover minor costs of supplies they choose to purchase.  

Interviewers schedule their own interviews, follow protocols developed by the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History for conducting interviews, recording and uploading digital files of interviews to the Nunn Center, and submitting online Deeds of Gift and metadata to the Nunn Center. To be considered an active interviewer, the interviewer is expected to conduct at least two interviews.
