Topics include group dynamics and leadership styles, leader responsibilities, liability issues, medical concerns, environmental concerns, planning a trip, screening potential trip participants, organizing the group, and carrying out a safe trip. There is a new format to the school; there will be only one evening of on-site class. Reading materials are provided below and a test will be e-mailed to the enrollees ahead of time. The students must read the material and, before the class, pass the written test. The evening class will consist of a Q&A period followed by scenarios to be discussed in small groups. Interested members should register on-line through the CMC website under Programs, Education or through the CMC Office. Please register for only one of the classes. Remember, there is now only one evening class per session. Please note that the Technical Climbing Section has its own Trip Leader School and application.
• CMC membership current paid status
• Three CMC trips completed: At least two must be hiking, backcountry ski, or snowshoe trips.
