Trip Leaders, Guides, Assistant Instructors- Adventure Programs is proud to offer a comprehensive development opportunity known as the Leadership Training Course (LTC). The coures is designed to train interested people in climbing, kayaking, canyoneering, group management, risk managment, outdoor leadership, outdoor cooking, wilderness first aid, wilderness survival/ primitive living skills and trip leadership/guiding. Additionally, you will go on a Colorado River Canoe and a backpacking trip. At the end of LTC, participants can apply to be on staff to work on a volunteer basis as kayak, canyoneering, and/or climbing class assistant and/or overnight trip leader. LTC is a great way to gain important experience in a variety of outdoor skills as well as the “usual” way staff become paid kayak/climbing instructors, paid program coordinators, and paid guides. LTC spans five-months and is offered annually every Fall through Winter quarters.
Please attend one of the info meetings to get an application and sign up for an interview. You will also get a reminder if you join the "Adventure Programs" mailing list or our FB Page www.facebook.com/UCSBAdventure.
