Whether you are attending our 8 week outdoor instructor academy as a career start, or you fancy a change of direction, by the end of this course you will be ready to make the transition into the outdoor industry. Around 50% of our students are those new to the outdoor industry with relatively no experience and looking for a change of direction, with ages ranging from 18 to 50 years old. Maybe this is something you have always wanted to do but never known how to get into it or been put off by the idea of starting at the bottom of the ladder as a trainee. With the leisure and adventure industry constantly growing, with more and more work options around the world, this is the ideal stepping stone to get the training required to get straight into the industry, whether freelance, self-employed, part time, volunteer work, or overseas - this course is suitable for all.

If this is you then our 4 week advanced academy instructor course could be the ideal way to gain some top coaching and develop existing skills further. With the addition of this new course, we can now offer you
