Alberta Foundations Level Program
This program is for folks looking to learn more about the outdoor industry as a career path and begin to build their skill set. Comprising six days of Centre-based Learning Modules and an optional 5-day Outdoor Journey, this program will introduce participants to the skills and foundational knowledge needed to become an outdoor leader, teacher, or facilitator.
Access vs. Intensive Format
We know that you have a busy life with many different responsibilities. So, in order to make this program more accessible, we are offering two different formats: Access or Intensive.
The Access format takes place at an urban or outdoor centre over the span of three separate pairs of days. Workshops are offered during the day and participants can return home each evening.
The Intensive format takes place at an outdoor centre where participants will live in shared accommodation for six days. All meals and accommodation will be provided in the Intensive format.
Centre-based Learning Workshops
In addition to the modules previously mentioned, some additional workshops that you can look forward to include:
Entry-level Outdoor Leadership certifications will be a part of the Foundations level program. Depending on your region, these will include: the Outdoor Council of Canada Field Leader and/or Interpretative Guides Association Interpretive Specialist certificate.
