The Trainers’ Course is a 2 day programme recognised by the Leave no Trace Centre for Outdoor Ethics. The practical course gives recognised Leave No Trace Trainer status to successful participants.

The course equips participants to:

The Trainers’ Course looks at a variety of teaching topics, styles and session ideas which are aimed at all potential countryside users, from children to proficient mountaineers and paddlers. It covers a range of varying good practices to suit the wide spectrum of ways we interact with the outdoor environment.

The course is being run by Myles Farnbank of Wilderness Scotland.
