Set in the heart of stunning south Shropshire, Live the Adventure has been running the finest instructor training courses for more than a quarter of a century. Live the Adventure expert Ant Eddies-Davies, his team and the courses have been praised worldwide. Ant has trained everyone from international defence forces to the emergency services and brings a wealth of experience.

Our students come from all corners of Europe and from all backgrounds, some wanting to plough straight into the great outdoors and other simply wanting to improve their skills. While many centres operate instructor courses, Live the Adventure’s consistently come out on top, both for quality of teaching and the price, which includes all meals and accommodation.

Unlike other training providers, our Academy Courses don’t just take place during the Winter months but are scheduled regularly throughout the year to give you as much flexibility as possible when planning your training.

We deliberately keep staff-to-student ratios small to guarantee the best possible development and have incredible facilities on hand to make our course your stepping stone to a life of adventure.

Our bespoke training programmes offer something for the complete beginner through to those wishing to gain Nationally Recognised Awards and certification in activities from climbing, navigation, first aid, water sports including canoeing, kayaking and power boating through to water rescue and rescue boat courses.

Elements of our intensive training programmes can all be booked as individual elements. We also train professionals in water rescue and are an approved training provider for Rescue 3 courses.

In addition to our UK courses, we also offer the best career training programme in the world to jump start an exciting profession in sustainable adventure travel tourism.  Whoever you are and whatever your experience, we will help turn your passion into an international career whether this be as a guide, expedition leader, tour operator or front office manager.
