Project COPE and Climbing Manager

Designed for those who will provide program management for council COPE and/or Climbing programs. Successful candidates may design and provide site-specific Level I and Level II Instructor training at the council level (for COPE if previously qualified as a COPE level II Instructor or for Climbing if previously qualified as a Climbing Level II Instructor). This section includes an informational overview and the sharing of best practices for safety; risk management; incident management and reporting; budgeting and finance; outdoor program structure and function; COPE and Climbing program operations and management; marketing, staff development and training; and course planning, design, and maintenance. Participants must be current in their training as a COPE or Climbing Level II Instructor (current NCS COPE or Climbing Director training also completes this requirement).
