The New Zealand Mountain Safety Council (MSC) is a national organisation with a mandate from our member organisations to encourage safe participation in land-based outdoor activities. There are two pathways available to complete MSC Outdoor Leader. We facilitate the setting of standards, offer training and education opportunities, create and distribute resources, lead public awareness campaigns and foster positive support in the community so that more people can discover and enjoy New Zealand’s outdoors safely. 1. Modular pathway via MSC branches The modular pathway requires the trainee to complete a number of compulsory trainings by attending various activities/courses. The prerequisite requirements are lower than that of the residential course but trainees are required to commit to multiple training events before they can be assessed. Important: You must be a member of the MSC to participate in the Outdoor Leader programme via the branch modular pathway. 2. Residential course via MSC National Office This pathway requires the trainee to have completed a number of prerequisites, such as minimum experience and first aid training, before they participate in the residential course. WHAT IS OUTDOOR LEADER? The MSC has provided quality outdoor leader training for many years and prides itself on being able to offer an award that encourages and fosters increased levels of safe participation in the outdoors. The residential course provides a designated 8 days (7 nights) of training and assessment and only requires one significant time commitment. Important: Participants wishing to attend a residential course must either be a MSC member, member of a collaborative leader development participating organisation, or a full feepaying participant. Many of the people who gain MSC’s Outdoor Leader award use it in their activities with other organisations, most commonly in youth or community organisations with a strong focus on young people. Others gain Outdoor Leader to increase their personal knowledge, skills and experience or because they want to become an MSC instructor and deliver outdoor education and outdoor safety training to the public. This often involves working towards gaining higher level MSC instructor warrants. Whatever your reason for participating, the MSC Outdoor Leader award will provide you with a strong competency base and allow you to contribute to the MSC vision of ‘more people participating safely in land-based outdoor activities’. MSC Outdoor leader is a nationally recognised industry award that allows people to organise and lead groups on overnight tramping/bushcraft trips and camps. Outdoor Leaders have the skills to provide leadership, sound judgement, decision making and effective group management in the NZ bush environment. For more information about the ODL training and assessment process, see the MSC Outdoor Leader Overview document. This contains everything you need to know about Outdoor Leader. AS PART OF THE OUTDOOR LEADER AWARD, YOU WILL COVER TOPICS INCLUDING: Outdoor emergency management Risk management Leadership Managing groups in the outdoor environment Communication Weather Trip planning Overnight camping in the bush Tramping skills and knowledge Navigation River safety WHAT’S AVAILABLE AFTER OUTDOOR LEADER? The Outdoor Leader award is the first step on the MSC instructor pathway (excluding Firearms and Avalanche). Once you have completed Outdoor Leader, you can begin training towards higher level Bushcraft awards and other disciplines such as Outdoor First Aid, Abseil and Alpine.
