This five-day, five-night course trains interested individuals ages 18 and up to serve as Leave No Trace Master Educators. Master Educators work with their council's Outdoor Ethics Advocates to provide Leave No Trace Trainer, BSA Leave No Trace 101 and other outdoor ethics awareness training.
- Prerequisite: Prior completion of a Leave No Trace Trainer course is recommended. A person who has not previously attended a Trainer course may be accepted with the recommendation of the council's Outdoor Ethics Advocate or approval of the course's Lead Instructor.
- Instructed By: Each BSA Master Educator course is taught by a set of nationally-designated Master Educator Instructors, so your Master Educator standing is recognized nationally by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
