Level 1 Instructor Courses

Leave No Trace – Virtual Trainer Course

Audience: Outdoor Educator Leaders (adults, 18 years+)

Course Date: November 29 – December 7, 2021; Mondays and Tuesdays from 4:30pm-7:00pm (MST); Pre-course materials available November 24, 2021

Using the unique online alternative format developed by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, this LNT Trainer Course will give participants LNT skills and ethics as well as techniques for effectively sharing these low impact practices with students of all ages. This course is ideal for outdoor leaders who take people of all ages outdoors for single or multi-day courses. Participants will prepare a lesson to teach virtually during the course (topics organized by the instructor). A heavy focus on teaching and learning as well as wildland ethics will be incorporated into this virtual training.

Participants will receive Leave No Trace Trainer credentials and will have the tools they need to offer Leave No Trace Awareness Courses and teach Leave No Trace widely. Certificate of professional development training hours will also be offered to participants.

Prepare to complete 10 hours of online zoom course meetings and 10 hours of additional course pre-work and homework.

Participants are encouraged (not required) to purchase the Leave No Trace Educator Toolkit prior to the course beginning. Purchasing at least one of the teaching books is helpful for participants.

*** This course is not ‘at your own pace, on your own’. There will be specific assignment deadlines, synchronous online meetings/classes, and lots of asynchronous on-your-own activities/readings. Thanks for your patience as we rely on virtual learning technology and strategies instead of the regular in-person field courses in light of Covid-19.

Cost: Starts at $179
