The Education Trip Leader certification is a new certification requirement since the law was passed in October of 2022. An ETL Certification is required for an educational institution conducting an outdoor educational trip that would normally require a Registered Maine Guide (trips overnight away from potable water and/or trips that occur on Maine’s waterways) shall provide for every 12 trip participants at least one educational trip leader who holds a valid educational trip leader permit and who is associated with the educational institution. If the person who is conducting the trip holds a valid Maine Guide’s license, then the educational trip leader permit is not required. To read more frequently asked questions visit our site
