My organization wants to offer a Leave No Trace Master Educator course, how can this be done?

Only organizations approved by the Center can offer the Leave No Trace Master Educator Course. Currently these organizations include: the Adirondack Mountain Club, the National Outdoor Leadership School, the Appalachian Mountain Club, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Green Earth OutdoorsLandmark Learning, the Wilderness Education Association, the Ninemile Wildlands Training Center (a US Forest Service training facility), Solid Rock Outdoor Ministries, Student Conservation Association. Individual Master Educators are not approved or authorized to run Master Educator Courses under any circumstances.

It is possible for organizations to ‘host’ a custom Master Educator Course at a location of their choosing by contracting one of the approved course providers to facilitate the course. Generally, the course provider selected to offer a custom course would provide the instructors, course materials, etc. However, the more a host can provide such as food, group gear, teaching facilities, etc., the lower the course cost is likely to be per participant (generally speaking).
