Our outdoor leadership course is delivered as both a dual qualification in conjunction with the Certificate IV in Guiding as well as a stand-alone traineeship.
If you’d like to choose your own outdoor adventure, this course is an ideal choice for you. You will open up career pathways to outdoor recreation, outdoor education, teaching, sports management, exercise science, tourism and international guiding through this course. Your potential employment settings include the corporate world, education and private enterprise.
To prepare you for the demands of the industry, our course focuses on outdoor activity training to both guide and instructor levels. You will learn specific skills in areas including bushwalking, canoeing, snow sports, mountain biking, risk management, navigation and trip planning. Develop the capabilities required to plan and deliver an outdoor recreation program for a wide range of clients.
At Box Hill Institute our Certificate IV in Guiding is unique as it includes environmental and indigenous units – something not all programs offer. You'll learn in the beautiful Yarra Valley, surrounded by bushland and the lake, at our Lilydale Lakeside campus. Our industry partners are located within a 20km radius of the campus. You’ll also gain hands-on, practical experience in bushwalking, canoeing, mountain biking and skiing, and be trained at Instructor level.
Work with industry partners to gain valuable experience in programs like the Yarra Ranges mountain bike “We Can Ride”. You’ll have the opportunity to instruct as well as directly engage with participants.
Make the most of our vast network of supportive employers, industry bodies and employment opportunities to gain practical industry experience and become ‘job ready’ before you finish your course. Gather on-the-job experience and further develop your guiding techniques within placements in different workplace settings. This way you’ll position yourself for the best possible employment opportunities.
