2016 LEAVE NO TRACE TRAINER AND AWARENESS COURSES
The Trainer Course is a key component of the Australia wide Leave No Trace program. A Leave No Trace Trainer Course is a shortened version of the Master Educator Course taking place over two days. Trainer Courses are aimed at land managers, outdoor educators, group leaders, tour guides, outdoor retailer and outdoor program staff who will teach the public directly about Leave No Trace. Participants in a Trainer Course will learn about the seven principles of Leave No Trace and develop techniques for disseminating low impact skills.
WHAT IS A TRAINER COURSE?
Trainer courses are designed for teachers, educators, guides, agency employees, and other outdoor professionals. Successful graduates of the Trainer Course gain the skills to teach Leave No Trace techniques and ethics to their clients, students, friends and family.
Participants learn the concepts of Leave No Trace and prepare to teach Leave No Trace curriculum in a variety of settings-schools, camps, parks, and wilderness areas. Workshop topics include the underlying ethics and seven principles of Leave No Trace:
- Plan Ahead and Prepare
- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
- Dispose of Waste Properly
- Leave What You Find
- Minimize the Impact of Fire
- Respect Wildlife
- Be Considerate of Your Hosts and Other Visitors
