1. Have been on at least four Sierra Club outings.
2. Be a Sierra Club member.
3. Be at least 18 years of age.
4. Attend the Level I Chapter Outing Leader training class.
5. Obtain a Red Cross Standard First Aid card or equivalent before proceeding to step 6.
6. Plan, publish and execute 2 evaluation outings before November 2018.

The COL1 Training session will be held on October 14, 2017. You will get classroom training on COL practices and policies and, optionally, Standard First Aid training and certification.  For more information on the Standard First Aid training and schedule, go to: http://www.firstaidgonewild.com
