Trainer Course


The Leave No Trace Trainer Course is designed for outdoor professionals, including teachers, educators, guides, and agency employees. Participants in the Trainer Course gain the skills to teach Leave No Trace techniques and ethics to their clients, students, friends, and family.

The course covers the seven principles of Leave No Trace and teaches participants how to disseminate low impact skills in a variety of settings such as schools, camps, parks, and wilderness areas.

Awareness Workshop

An Awareness Workshop is a formal Leave No Trace presentation that is one day or less in length. The workshop can include a wide variety of programs, ranging from a 30-minute presentation to a full day workshop. These workshops are designed for a variety of groups, including educators, children, tertiary students, Scouts, outdoor professionals, trails and conservation crews, recreation club members, and others interested in Leave No Trace skills and ethics. The course leader for an Awareness Workshop can be a Leave No Trace Master Educator, a Leave No Trace Trainer, or another individual familiar with Leave No Trace.
