You need to have a college van license to become an MMC guide, so this is your opportunity! To get a 7-passenger van license, you need to attend one of the classroom sessions below, taught by Ed Sullivan, the college's Environmental Health and Safety Coordinator. To get a 15-passenger van license (preferred), you need to have had your state license for 3+ years, attend a classroom session and then schedule a road test with Ed. Email him at to sign up for a class.

Nov 7, 9:00-11:00am
Dec 7, 9:00-11:00am
All classes in Mitchell Green Lounge.

If you really want a van license (because guiding for the MMC is your dream), but you have class during all those times, email Emma at, and we'll try to schedule something that works better.
