March & April 2019 are two very busy months on our training calendar. 

We are delighted to have our Advanced Trainer Course taking place in Lough Lannagh, Castlebar, Co Mayo from March 18th -22nd. This 5-day intensive course provides Leave No Trace Trainers with comprehensive facilitation training on Leave No Trace skills and ethics with practical application for the delivery of a 2-day trainer field-based course. The Advanced Trainer Course is designed to prepare trainers to be the best possible educators of Leave No Trace in Ireland regardless of geographical settings. We look forward to welcoming the 12 participants from a great variety of backgrounds. 

March 23rd, 2019 is the date for the CPD training for Leave No Trace Trainers. We will be joined by Ben Lawhon, Education Director from Leave No Trace US. We are looking forward to sharing knowledge and learning from Ben and also hearing the latest Irish research from Noel Doyle Ph.D., who has conducted extensive research into how to effect behavioural change in the outdoors. Some tickets are still available for this event.

March 28th 2019, Leave NoTrace are traveling to Valladolid, Spain to take part in the delivery of the 5-day leadership programme NG Europe. This programme is training community activists in NGO Leadership. 2 Irish trainees will travel to Spain also to participate in the five-day training.

April 5th 2019, Leave No Trace will host a 1-day seminar in GMIT Castlebar, Co. Mayo. This free 1-day seminar is an opportunity for the general public to hear Irish NGO’s share their story, how they turned their passion into action, the how and the why of getting started, how they operate, how they fundraise and the challenges they face.  There will be an opportunity to meet with the NGO founders and ask questions. This is a free event but booking is essential. if you would like to attend please book your free ticket here.

We are running 2 Certified Awareness Courses in April, the first is on in IT Tralee on April 1st  and the next one is in Donegal Adventure Centre, Bundoran, on April 19th. Both of these events can be booked online by clicking your preferred event below.
