Tread Lightly!®’s Master Tread Trainer™ (MTT) course is an intensive 1-day workshop designed to provide an in-depth look at outdoor ethics focusing on motorized and mechanized recreation on both land and water. The MTT course requires participants to complete pre-course assignments, develop and present assigned components of the Tread Trainer course and actively participate throughout the course.
Participation in the course qualifies individuals to present the Tread Lightly! message consistently to others in their state or region. Working with Tread Lightly! staff, participants will understand the role outdoor ethics play in the recreation community, learn the Tread Lightly! principles of responsible recreation and be provided with the tools to conduct a variety of learning opportunities including training Tread Trainers through an 8 hour course.
Ideally, participants would be familiar with Tread Lightly!, the T.R.E.A.D. Principles, involved in community outreach, recreational training programs or natural resource management and interested in developing a high awareness and competency in outdoor ethics. Participants should also have some background in outdoor education or presentation skills. It is highly recommended that participants complete a Tread Trainer or other outdoor ethics training prior to taking the Master Tread Trainer course.
All Master Tread Trainer course participants will be required to pass the Master Tread Trainer Qualification Exam with a score of 80% or better in order to be qualilfied as a Master Tread Trainer.
