PARMA, Ohio-- It was training day for some of the 8,000 volunteers who will welcome and assist the delegates and visitors for the Republican National Convention.

The volunteers learned about their roles as way finders, and airport and hotel greeters on Tuesday.

The training includes information about Cleveland’s many attractions so the volunteers can give recommendations for places to go. There is also an overview on safety and security.

“We'll talk about who the guests are that are coming into their hotels. What they will be asking. We're talking a little bit about that delegate experience. They will be talking about security. What thing should you maybe keep an eye out for in your areas? If you see something awkward, what should you do? Who you should call? Things like that," said Jennifer Kramer with the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee.

It’s estimated the volunteers will cover about 8,400 shifts over the course of the four-day convention. Volunteers need to attend one training session.

The host committee is still looking for a few more volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering should go to the website convention.gop
