Leadership Level 1 (Hiking)
This course is being offered in conjunction with the Annual General Meeting. Successful graduates will be certified as OCC 'Outdoor Leadership Level 1 (LL1)' with a 'Level 1 Hiking' specialization.

This course is suitable for anyone wanting the LL1 certification, or planning to become and instructor of this course. The exact pre-requisites for the instructor level course have not been determined yet, but we anticipate that taking this course will count toward the instructor certification.

Course fee includes instruction, student manual, and one year's membership fee in the Outdoor Council.

Course Content:

The course will be split between in-class learning (65%) and field exercises (35%). The learning format will be primarily guided experiential learning. Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the role of the leader and leadership style
  • Integrating ‘activity’ ‘participant’ and ‘venue’ characteristics so as to promote even quality and safety
  • constructing an activity plan
  • Identifying hazards and mitigation strategies
  • communication and team building between participants, co-leaders and other stakeholders
  • Group management in the field
  • enhancing situational awareness for quality and safety management
  • emergency response
  • post trip debriefing and facilitation

Prerequisites: The only prerequisite for this course is a love of the outdoors and a passion to share that experience with others.
