Project Leadership Training

COMPLETED
Intermediate    ●    Full Day    ●    Miniumum Age: 18 (more info)

Date(s):
SaturdayFeb 20, 2010 - Number of Volunteers: 20

Would you enjoy working with a great team of fellow volunteers to take the helm of a WRV restoration project and lead it to success? If leadership, teamwork, project planning and getting "behind the scenes" with restoration sound like they're up your alley, you're a great candidate to become a Project Leader! Consider taking our training to become a Project Leader or Assistant Project Leader for the 2010 season.

WHAT IS PROJECT LEADERSHIP?
The Project Leader works with the project leadership team, land managers, and WRV staff, and is the single person with the comprehensive "big picture" view of a project. WRV depends upon many dedicated volunteers to complete thirty stewardship projects on public lands each year. Most WRV projects are managed by a leadership team that includes a project leader, technical advisor, cook team, tool manager and sometimes others. The Project Leader coordinates the team and ensures that all aspects of a project are taken care of prior to the project event.

Most new Project Leaders start off as an Assistant Project Leader, working with an experienced Project Leader to learn the ropes of project management. Assisting is a great way to gradually step into the role.

**You're never on your own as a leader in WRV - fellow volunteers and the WRV staff are here to help you through every step of the process.**

An integral part of becoming a WRV Project Leader is understanding WRV projects and leadership team. It is required that all PL trainees complete or will complete basic Crew Leader training as this training will build upon these fundamentals. In some cases substantial WRV experience can be substituted for this requirement.

WHEN: Sat, Feb 20, 8:30am - 4:00pm

TRAINING FEE
Regular Fee: $75
Discounted Fee: $30 (for current members and volunteers)
Scholarships are available. If you are an active WRV member, do not let the cost stop you from becoming a the next great WRV Project Leader. Please call to discuss.

Safety always comes first on A WRV project! WRV encourages volunteers, especially leaders, to take this valuable training. And, as we all know, first aid skills are valuable for life in general.

Would you know what to do if someone needed your help in the back country? What if that someone was you or your friend? This course is designed for those of you who want to know what to do in a back country emergency. In this course you will receive hands on practice time. You will participate in first aid scenarios that will sharpen your first aid skills and give you a chance to practice in "real life".

This training will be instructed by Mark Rosoff with the Front Range Institute of Safety (www.frisfirstaid.com/) and will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to care for those who are injured or suddenly ill in remote locations. The Wilderness Medical Society defines wilderness as a remote geographical location more than one hour from definitive medical care. Also covered is an overview of wilderness medicine issues such as wilderness emergencies and extended care situations. The text for this course is "Wilderness First Aid: Emergency Care for Remote Locations" tells how to identify and treat illness and injury encountered specifically in remote locations. The text is included in the course fee. Certificates Issued: Standard Wilderness First Aid.

Tues/Thurs evening course (4 hours each night):
This eight hour course consists of classroom instruction, demonstration, practical skills practice, the use of audio/visual materials, and student participation. This course does not cover the entire book in detail. Instead the instructor provides an overview of the material and presents the highlights on the various topics. The students are expected to read the book after the course is completed in order to reinforce what was discussed and learn in more detail what is in the book.

NOTE: We HIGHLY encourage you to sign up INSTEAD, for the 16 Hour training, which is three dates (including Saturday, March 6 all day) for the full 16 hours of training (classroom and field). To do that, please go back to Trainings, then click on "WFA Training 16 Hour" and register. However, it is possible to only take on the WFA 8 Hour training by signing up here.

NOTE: CPR instruction is NOT part of the Wilderness First Aid course. Individuals in remote locations needing CPR are rarely resuscitated. Some CPR issues are discussed however, such as when to give prolonged CPR, when not to start CPR, and when to stop CPR.

DATES/TIMES
Tuesday, March 2 5:30pm-9:30pm and Thursday, March 4 5:30pm-9:30pm.

TRAINING FEE for 8 Hour training

The culmination of this WFA training is an 8 hour Saturday field session which complements the prior classroom session. Students will practice under the direction of the instructors, who will demonstrate various skills needed by students in the scenarios. Students will practice basic skills such as bandaging, splinting, moving a patient safely, and patient assessment. Next they participate in scenarios in order to teach them how to evaluate the medical emergency, treat the patient, and develop an evacuation plan. Finally, the group acts together as a team involving a scenario with multiple victims. All scenarios are debriefed by the students. Discussion and evaluation is encouraged.

Technical Advisor Orientation - BOULDER

COMPLETED
   ●    Evening    ●    Miniumum Age: 16 (more info)

Date(s):
WednesdayMar 17, 2010 - Number of Volunteers: 10

We'll discuss the roles and responsibilities of a WRV Technical Advisor (TA), and how the TA works within a WRV Project Team. We'll discuss how to plan a project that accomplishes the desired technical goals, but also works well for crew leaders and volunteers. The training runs from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Arrive at 5:30pm to for food!

This is NOT a training session on the technical design aspects of projects. Since projects vary so much, and employ so many different restoration techniques, the best way to learn design is "on the job" as an assistant technical advisor.

We'll have some time during the session for returning TAs to describe the highlights of what they have learned being a TA.

WRV has a relatively small TA community, so we also want this meeting to be a venue to meet each other, share ideas, and ask questions of your peers.

Date(s):
TuesdayApr 06, 2010 - Number of Volunteers: 25

Every WRV project requires tools. No Tools, No Project! Tool managers are the beloved volunteers who put so much care into organizing the tools and gear for a project, and transporting them to and from the worksite. Tool management is a great way to get more involved with a project without a lot of training or experience. And, you can usually take off during the middle of a project to relax or recreate if you like.

On this Tuesday evening, from 5:00 to 7:30pm, we'll gather at our tool shed in Gunbarrel to talk about how tool managers work with the rest of project planning team, assemble a tool list, transport tools to and from the site, stage tools for crews, help with camp set-up, and more. You'll have a chance to see our spectacular collection of tools and ask questions. Once trained you can mentor with an experienced tool manager to learn on a real project!
