Anyone interested in becoming a Tread Lightly Trainer (be certified to help spread the Tread Lightly principles)?
Or next level, how about interested in becoming a Master Trainer (teach others to be Tread Lightly Trainer)?
Typically these courses are only offered in S. Cal or somewhere up in Seattle or Utah areas (HQ for TL). Rare in the Bay Area which makes it far drive for us Bay Area residents to have to drive down to S. Cal (which I did to get certified as Tread Lightly Trainer).
Now there is an opp to setup these courses - Tread Lightly Org just got a grant to offer these courses in the Bay Area.
I am working with Mary Van Buren, Training and Education Manager for Tread Lightly w/logistics.
Selected cities have to be near the airport e.g. Oakland, SJO or SFO for Tread Light officials to be able to fly-in or short drive.
And centrally located to generate enough interest (typically min 25 sign-ups to cover cost) (register cost is anywhere between $25-$50) attendees from all over the Bay Area. Opp for NCLR club members, prospects or general public to take these courses.
Also our club, NCLR, has a leadership opportunity to help Tread Lightly and be involved or get more members trained.
I am a certified Tread Light Trainer and have volunteered to co-teach/assist these courses.
Couple of questions:
1) Anyone here interested in becoming a Tread Lightly Trainer?
2) Master Trainer? Besides me, anyone else.
3) Do we still have connection with LR Fremont or LR Redwood to be able to use their facility on Sat or Sunday. Even though Tread Lightly received a grant - it's not a whole lot of money, and if we can offer a meeting room at no cost, we might even be able to barter registration or get recognition. I am working on it as your Director of Affairs - lol!
Please get back to me if interested and if you have answers to questions above; here's the link to Tread Lightly: http://www.treadligh...ourses.html?t=2
