Participants in this 16 hour LNT Trainer Course receive introductory training in Leave No Trace skills and Outdoor Ethics. Participants learn about Leave No Trace, TREAD Lightly! and wildland ethics including teaching techniques necessary for disseminating these critical outdoor skills to their Scouting units.
At the completion of the course, all participants will be recognized by the Center for Outdoor Ethics as LNT Trainers who can train Scouts and the community-at-large to be conservation minded. This course is open to adults registered with the BSA and to BSA youth (Boy Scouts or Venturers) who are age 14 by April 28, 2018.
Completion of this course is highly recommended for Boy Scouts who wish to hold the Outdoor Ethics Guide position or responsibility and for unit leaders who want to implement Outdoor Ethics effectively within their unit.

This course will be entirely outdoors, in a quasi-backpacking format involving an overnight campout and a day hike around the loop trail. Participants will plan, bring and cook their own meals and each participant will be required to give a ten minute presentation using the skills they have learned and materials they prepared before the course.
