Workshops Program Overview
Volunteer Trail Skills workshops are held each year in a variety of locations. Since 1995, with financial assistance provided by the National Park Service, Appalachian Trail Conservancy has developed a series of training programs to improve the level of safety training, safety awareness, and skills development among Trail clubs, volunteer maintainers, Trail crews, and state and federal agencies. ATC has prepared curricula for a variety of topics (based on chapters in the ATC stewardship manual, Appalachian Trail Design, Construction, and Maintenance), including:
Additionally, comprehensive two-day wilderness first-aid courses are offered in conjunction with ridgerunner training/orientation programs.
