Whether you'd like to become a Chapter leader or just want to improve your outdoor skills, you're invited to attend. Training emphasizes group dynamics, leaders' responsibilities, trip planning and management, weather emergencies, incident/accident scene control, leader awareness, and decision-making. Fee of $40 includes 2-day training and materials. Overnight lodging available for $20/night. Advance payment requested. Existing leaders attend at no charge.
AMC Berkshire Chapter wants to encourage leaders, so we are offering the basic training and WFA free of charge, and heavy discounts on advanced training - see details below. The next basic Leadership Training will be October 2014. Stay tuned for details.

We do have some requirements trip leaders must fulfill (PDF), in order to make sure that leaders are qualified and prepared for possible problems. These requirements are pretty flexible and reasonable, however. We'll do a lot to help you meet them and get any training you might need or want.
