LNT Trainer Course


This course is offered to train Boy Scouts (age 14 and older), Venturers, and adults (Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venture) to serve as Leave No Trace Trainers for Scouting and the wider public. For a Scout to serve in the Troop Leave No Trace Trainer position, he must complete the Leave No Trace Trainer Course.

This course is designed to enhance your understanding of Leave No Trace practices and ethics and to increase your level of expertise and confidence in teaching Leave No Trace skills. Through focused activities, hands-on field experience and both formal and informal discussions, you will be introduced to concepts and methods that will advance your knowledge of Leave No Trace issues, expand your repertoire of low-impact skills, and increase your effectiveness in teaching these important skills to others.

On completion of this course, participants will be registered as Leave No Trace Trainers with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and will receive a certificate of course completion, Leave No Trace Trainer lapel pin, and BSA Leave No Trace Trainer card. 

This course is instructed by nationally designated Leave No Trace Master Educators and Trainers.  Attendance for the entire duration of the training is required.
