Hike Leader Training

This is a special hike leader training exclusively for members of the Charlottesville and South Shenandoah Chapters. This class is limited to twenty people. Trail Patrol offers a hike leader class for hikers who want to learn new skills as well as to become formal hike leaders for PATC. This course will help you update your leadership skills. This one-day course provides essential skills for leading a safe, environmentally responsible and enjoyable hike. It includes having two co-led hikes with an experienced PATC hike leader in order to receive your certificate. We cover how to handle basic first aid, leadership development, trip planning, standard procedures, emergency procedures, gear and clothing (ten essentials), basic map reading and navigation, and Leave No Trace ethics. The training includes lectures with hands on applications and trail-based scenarios. The course will be held March 28 at Crozet Library. You must provide your own lunch.
