COP Leadership Training  

All COP Leaders must be approved by their Activity Leaders and must have at a minimum, activity-oriented leader training including the Risk Management and paperwork sections of the Trip Leaders Manual.

Leaders of extended trips must attend the full leader training offered by the COP Office unless exempted by the Board.

Start by going to the Leader Training page and read the materials there.

After you have digested this information, you will need to:

1. take a quizz

2. Meet with a Leader Trainer for a 2 hour session

after which we expect you will be all set to join the cadre of COP Leaders.

Contact office@outdoor-pursuits.org for the quizz.
