2015 - Recruiting new Trail Leaders!!

2 years 8 months ago #8133 by LeBlanc
In October 2010, AZLRO introduced their Trail Leader program.

Offered as a way for members who wanted to grow their skills not only as an off-road adventurer but as a leader and a contributor to the club, AZLRO employed famed offroad trainer Bill Burke to conduct a Trail Leader training class.

For 2015, we've managed to corral Bill Burke again to provide another training class. This training will serve as a both a refresher for our current Trail Leaders and to offer the opportunity to newer members and members that may now want to go through the experience.

Training Dates: January 23-25, 2015

This is an intensive training course focuses on human dynamics, spotting, vehicle platform knowledge, technical theory and off-road driving, skill building for recovery and leadership exercises.

REQUIREMENTS:

A Land Rover
Moderate to advanced experienced drivers
Paid member of the club for one year or more
Wilderness First Aid & CPR certification (see below)
Gloves (you'll find out why!)
Along with the required Trail Leader Training, all Trail Leaders will be required to complete a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) 2-day class. AZLRO has scheduled a WFA class for April 25-26 that will cost $125 per individual. If you cannot attend this date, you may schedule your own WFA class. If you already have a WFA certification that runs through at least November 2015, that is also acceptable.

FURTHER REQUIREMENTS:

All AZLRO Trail Leaders for the 2015 Rally must attend the Trail Leader training program. This program will support the 2015 Rally and year round activities of the club.
Members who have completed the Trail Leader training are also required to lead at least one trail per year for the club in addition to leading trails during the Rally.[/size]

Please reply here with your questions or if you'd like to sign up for the program!

Kudos to the council and our resident Trail Master for getting this set up! If you haven't had the opportunity to learn from Bill Burke, you're missing out.

Thanks for setting up this opportunity, this is great!

I would most certainly like to sign up for this as well as the wfa so just let me know what the costs are and how to get signed up.

Any particular mods/gear suggested for this?

Great to see this coming to fruition.
Checked calendar, and Laurie and I are both in. She already has the wilderness first aid, but wouldn't mind re-doing. I'm sure we'll figure out all the details. Looking forward to it!
