The COC Training Program

The objectives of the Calgary Outdoor Club Training Program are to:
   a) provide educational sessions to members;
   b) raise awareness about different aspects of the outdoors   
   c) increase the members' safety while enjoying their activities in the mountains    and
   d) provide everyone the opportunity to ask pertinent questions.

SESSION:

When was the last time you encountered a bear? Did you act appropriately? If you're unsure or want to learn more then consider joining us. Whether you have never learned how to deal with bear encounters or just looking for a refresher, here is what the session will cover:
**Identifying Black bears & grizzly bears
**Where you're at risk of encountering a bear
**Bear behaviour
**Bear avoidance
**What to do if you encounter a bear
**Bear spray & other tools to keep you safe!

Regardless of your activity, when you're in the mountains, you should be aware of how to act and how a bear may act. The club wants your outings to be safe without having a bear chewing on your lunch or deciding YOU are lunch.

Unreasonable last minute cancellations (2 hours or less prior to event) and no shows preventing others from attending the event will be recorded. If you are in the habit of cancelling last minute pls do not sign up. Thank you for your consideration for other COC members.
