We have created an Outdoor Instructor Training Program which gives you as many options as possible, so you can access the training that specifically matches your needs. All of this training can be accessed in small bites as stand alone NGB qualifications, skills training development and preparation for qualifications, or as a whole 13 week package of multi-activity skills development and NGB awards. Most of the training is based from our site in North Devon and ultilises the countryside, rivers and coast on our doorstep. Our training is led by Mark Garland who has many years of training experience and many qualifications to his name.
To check out when we are running the training and assessment that’s relevant to you, check out the training schedule. If you’ve still got any questions or want to talk through which qualification is appropriate for you, or to book please contact Mark Garland directly on 07973 910120 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
