The Adventure Tourism Business Operations certificate and diploma programs have been developed in response to industry demand for a more professional approach to Adventure Tourism Operations. These programs have been designed to assist individuals by helping to increase their knowledge and experience in both small business skills and in building professional outdoor skills for future employment prospects within the Adventure Tourism Industry. Students enrolled in these programs can develop a balance of business, communication, operations management, technical field skills and leadership and interpersonal skills. Students can also acquire national certifications in a selection of outdoor pursuits appropriate for guiding positions within the Adventure Tourism Industry. These programs are appropriate for students wishing to grow within an existing Adventure Tourism Operation, or for those students interested in developing their own opportunities.
