Course Dates

We want each student on our outdoor instructor training courses to obtain all of the awards on offer, by offering quality personal attention and training – at the end of the day that’s what you are paying for!

For this reason we limit the number of students on each Academy course, averaging around 5 per course with a maximum of 8. This top quality staffing and low ratio training ensures we can offer you a high quality training programme with the best possible pass rates.

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.
