New Staff Training
This spring, TMI is welcoming 9 new staff members to our team of field instructors. This new group began their new staff training at noon on Friday, April 9 and will conclude their training session on Sunday, April 18. This 10 day training will cover all of the content, group handling, campcraft, and risk management skills associated with being a TMI Field Instructor.
The training was designed and is being run by the Appalachia Program's Education Coordinator, Beth Boehme. The new staff spent the first three nights learning their way around the Spruce Knob Mountain Center and hiked out into the woods today for a 6 night camping, field-based training session.
