Backroads Leadership Training Program Dates

Please note: If you do not currently hold a CPR/1st aid certification valid through October 2016, please get certified prior to arriving for Training. Backroads will reimburse your costs up to $65 per class. Online certifications are not accepted. To maximize your work opportunities, we recommend choosing the earliest training session possible. This is especially important if you're interested in working in Europe, as we may cancel later dates if we meet our business needs ahead of schedule.
