2 Day Trainer Course
May 12, 2020 @ 10:30 am - May 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
This two-day course is designed for individuals who will be delivering Leave No Trace Ireland Awareness Workshops in the future or embedding Leave No Trace in other programmes. Through very short classroom discussions, outdoor lectures and outdoor adventures, this course will cover the seven Leave No Trace Ireland principles and discuss outdoor ethics. It will give the participants tools and techniques for disseminating low-impact skills to others.
The Leave No Trace Trainer’s Course will focus on the delivery of the seven principles of Leave No Trace and techniques for teaching. Participants will be asked to come prepared to do a short outdoors teaching session on one of these principles incorporated into a skill or some other Leave No Trace specific topic. These topics will be sent to participants prior to attending the course.
As a group we will be advising and critiquing each other in an effort to learn more about how to effectively communicate the skills and ethics of Leave No Trace.
The emphasis is to make this as discussion based as possible with practical methods used in an outdoor classroom and will be done as part of a journey on foot looking at a range of environments that lend themselves to highlighting the seven principles.
Participants must have completed a Certified Awareness Course to take part.
