Submit Courses for Our Training Calendar

Listing Your Training Course

Council Outdoor Ethics Advocates, or the Leave No Trace Master Educator or Master Tread Trainer conducting the course, are encouraged to submit their council's OE training courses for listing on our training calendars:
  • BSA Leave No Trace Trainer
  • BSA Leave No Trace Master Educator
  • Tread Trainer or Master Tread Trainer
  • (We're not listing Leave No Trace 101, OE Orientation, awareness workshops, or events/activities at this time.)


  • It is preferred that fliers be posted on the host council's registration web site, and we will put up a link to that website, so that if changes are needed to the flier there is just one place that they have to be made.
  • Please make sure that the information on the flier and the information on the registration web site are accurate, and match. i.e..the cost for the course is the same in both locations.
  • We have seen a lot of course promotion materials lately which aren't quite up to our standards or the standards requested by our partners. Please see this webpage which explains common issues and suggestions for how to fix them.
