Leadership Training Program
The LTP curriculum reflects training that focuses on leadership skills while understanding that knowledge is an enabler of those skills. Though some of the training deals specifically with skills needed in a GWRRA leadership position, other training deals with Life Skills and Member Orientation topics that will enhance the Member’s life both within and outside of GWRRA. In general, our training is designed to reach visual, verbal, and kinetic learners; our goal is “something for everyone”. It is the intent of the LTP to deliver training in a professional manner and to make certain that training is a fun learning experience for all participants.
University Trainer Development Program
The University Trainer Development Program is a cooperative effort between GWRRA Leadership Training, Rider Education& Membership Enhancement. The program is designed to teach Candidates to be University Trainer Program. It should be made clear to the Candidates that this program only certifies them to teach GW University Seminars. To teach Seminars from the Three Programs will require the Candidate to take additional training from the program they are interested in presenting. Completion of the program requires the Candidates to have satisfactory evaluations in the classroom and in two “field” Seminar Presentations.
Officer Certification Program (OCP)
The Officers Certification Program or better known as the “OCP” is a program in the GWRRA Curriculum that is an in-depth seminar of the basic duties and responsibilities of an Operations Officer. It’s main objective is to assist the Officers in the following responsibilities: Finances, Membership Enhancement. IRS Compliance, Rider Ed, Teambuilding, Conflict Resolution, Goal Setting, to name a few. This is a very good program for every member but is a requirement for the Directors.
The OCP can be taken in the classroom or online.
The Horizon Program is a fast track overview of the core LTP curriculum with “hands on” training of practical applications, and an excellent class for potential CDs and staff. Horizon is also a great class for the general Membership to learn more about teamwork, self-awareness, interpersonal communication, and building better chapters. Members learn about how to have FUN in GWRRA in a challenging day and a half course filled with lots of surprises. It is typically conducted during the winter/early spring months and not during riding season. It is an interactive program – the more everyone participates, the more everyone learns!
