Conservation Coach Trainings are offered by CCNet Global in coordination with regional CCNet Networks and often with partners who co-host trainings.
Trainings are for those already experienced with the Conservation Standards, with the opportunity or the mandate to lead conservation project teams, who feel ready and desire to increase their knowledge. Because these trainings are immersive, we offer them in-person.
We had not held a coach training since February 2020 (South Africa) as the pandemic closed in, and are excited that starting in May of 2022 CCNet Europe offered the first new coach training again in France and severeal other trainings are being offered also this year!
