This course is taught online through live, interactive video Zoom meetings and requires ~1 hour/week of outside assignments and preparation. In addition, each participant will prepare and teach a 10-15 minute lesson to the class, to be assigned before the first class meeting.


UCSB Adventure Programs is proud to offer Leave No Trace Trainer online courses taught by one of our Master Educators. This 16-hour online course has been reformatted to include interactive live Zoom meetings and instruction. It will consist of “pre-Zoom” participant assignments and preparation followed by online presentations and class discussion. Our goal is for participants to finish the course feeling confident in their abilities to minimize outdoor impacts and pass those skills on to others.

Leave No Trace Trainer Course Certificate of Completion requires 16 hours of coursework. While typically the course takes place in the field, our online Trainer course will be conducted in the “virtual” field, and a little on your own.
