DOC Leader Training Subsidy Application
PLEASE NOTE: If you are taking the WFA PE course offered at Dartmouth by The DOC/Outdoor Programs, your subsidy will be automatically applied as long as you are on your club's leader-in-training list(confirm with your club's leader training coordinator). Keep in mind that the full charge will show up the term you took the course and the subsidy usually shows up as a credit on the following term's student bill - apologies for the confusion. If you are taking one of the pre-approved courses below, you can receive normal DOC/OPO financial aid in addition to this subsidy. Bring receipt and proof of certification to the Financial Coordinator for reimbursement.
The DOC and Outdoor Programs seek to train student leaders of the highest calibre. To that end, subsidies are available for any training or certification courses that will, in the club's view, materially improve the leader's ability to lead at a high level both technically and adaptively.
*To qualify for subsidy, individuals must either be certified leaders within one or more of the clubs of the DOC, or be verifiably in the process of becoming so. In the latter case, the club's officers must certify the individual's status as a leader in training and approve of using the club's resources to subsidize the training.
*Wilderness First Aid courses are required for most leaders and as such are heavily subsidized. The cost to leaders is $20. If you take the course when it is offered as a PE class internally, the price will be adjusted on your student account. OPO will contact clubs to obtain lists of leaders in training in order to apply this discount. If you take an outside course, fill out this form and bring your receipt and proof of certification to the financial coordinator for reimbursement. For basic CPR/FA, the cost to leaders will be $10.
*For other trainings, the normal discount will be 50% of the cost of the course. Financial aid, if eligible, will apply after that discount has been applied.
*For qualified leaders or leaders in training, normal DOC/OPO financial aid shall apply to the cost of qualified training courses. The list of pre-approved courses is shown below. If the training to which you wish to have financial aid applied does not appear below, fill out the application.
*Courses or programs offered internally to leaders may already be subsidized and not eligible for this program.
*Student must have at least two terms remaining as a student to qualify.
*Once you have completed this application, your status as a leader or leader in training will be verified and you will be notified of the status of your application.
*If approved, simply bring proof of payment and proof of completion of your course to the OPO Financial Coordinator for reimbursement.
*WFA, WFR, OEC, W-EMT or other wilderness medical certification from a recognized wilderness medical organization.
