TAMBA will be hosting a U.S. Forest Service-approved crew leader training course the weekend of April 5-6 in the Tahoe area. The Forest Service has stringent training requirements for volunteer crew leaders, and this training may also be accepted by other land manager agencies. The training will be taught by Kevin Joell, TAMBA’s Trails Director, and Jacob Quinn, Trails Engineer for the Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. Each has 20-plus years of trail building experience.
Topics will include volunteer management and supervision techniques, safety briefings and job hazard analysis, and emergency procedures and communications. Although trail building standards and best practices will be reviewed, it is expected that attendees will have participated in multiple sanctioned trail days previously. First Aid and CPR certification is also required of crew leaders. It is not included in this course but will be offered separately.
Saturday April 5: 8:30am -5:00pm at the LTBMU Forest Supervisors Office, 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, CA
Sunday April 6: will be in the field, location TBD
The cost is $50 for non-TAMBA volunteers, free for TAMBA volunteers, RSVP required.
