DescriptionThis two-year Ontario College Diploma program provides professional guide training with the theoretical and practical skills required to work in the global outdoor adventure industry. Partnered with Wilderness Tours (Canada`s largest outdoor adventure company) students can acquire national certification in a selection of disciplines. Emphasis is placed on providing students with a well-grounded background in three main principles: safety of self and others, respect for self and others and respect for natural and cultural environments.

Students gain theoretical knowledge in the business side of the industry through courses, such as computer applications, accounting, risk management, industry analysis, leadership and ethics, marketing and customer service and communications. A significant portion of the program focuses on outdoor practical training. Students learn a wide variety of adventure activities including whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, winter survival camping, alpine skiing and mountain biking. In addition, students take part in several multi-day expeditions.
