»Outdoor Leader Training 101 classOutdoor Leader Training 101 classSierra Club members are invited to participate in a class teaching culture, rules and skills for Sierra Club outings leaders. This is one of four training exercises for leaders: 1) OLT 101; 2) OLT 201 (sequel class for leaders of outings that are overnight or far from cars); 3) Wilderness First Aid (Basic First Aid is the alternative for leaders of only day hikes); 4) leadership of a "provisional" outing, accompanied by another leader. Upon completion of those steps, the Outings Committee determines when a prospective leader is ready to independently lead a Sierra Club outing.   The class is from 1 to 5 PM at the Whole Foods Market, southeast corner of Preston Road and Forest Lane in Dallas, upstairs. There is no class fee.  Prospective leaders and current leaders who want to renew OLT 101 training are encouraged to participate.  Please reply so we can anticipate group size and materials to prepare.  We won't repeat this class until 2017.  SAVE THE DATE and also the dates for OLT 201 (June 11-12).
