Your Connection To the Outdoors

Online Refresher Training for Chapter Activity Leaders

As restrictions ease up across Massachusetts, the AMC Berkshire and Worcester Chapters are teaming up to offer a series of online refresher seminars for current activity leaders.

Seminars are scheduled on Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. starting on June 11th. You are welcome to attend all or as many as you can. Seminars cover material updated with the most recent information available from AMC’s Outdoor Learning Institute and the Leadership Requirements and Guidelines. The topics will be presented via the Zoom online meeting platform and an invitation will be sent to those who register.

Please note these are not the to-be-announced required AMC training for leading trips during COVID-19. Rather, these are meant as refresher/update for existing leaders. During these sessions, however, you will have time to discuss how the new information may impact trips during the ongoing pandemic. Dates and topics as as follows:

6/11 - Environmental Stewardship
6/18 - Screening
6/25 - Risk Management
7/02  - Trailhead Talk
7/09  - Trip Planning
7/16 - Accident Scene Management
7/23 - Leaders and Decision-Making
7/30 - Diversity Equity and Inclusion
