The Leisure Industry is a fast growing area and there is a constant demand for qualified and experienced outdoor pursuit Instructors, especially in the field of Outdoor Pursuits, Adventure Sports within the Leisure Industry.
As with all industries, it is a chicken and egg situation. In order to gain employment, experience is needed. To gain experience employment is required. We at Open Door have recognised this dilemma, hence, our range of TOPIC courses, (trainee outdoor pursuits instructor course) which range from our eight week introductory course, sixteen week course to our 6-month or one year course.
We strive to nurture and develop inspirational Instructors who are dynamic teachers of outdoor pursuits courses in Wales. This is why the 6 month course is highly recommended and specifically designed to produce Quality Instructors who are able to gain Employment.
A maximum of 4 N.G.B qualifications can be chosen. Plus First Aid & Foundation Rescue Course or White Water rescue Course 6 Months course.
Most Centre’s request instructors to hold a Walking, Climbing, Mountain Bike and Canoe Kayak N.G.B Qualification, as a minimum standard within the industry, We therefore prefer to work with you towards these main four qualifications. You will also gain valuable experience in other activities which helps you have a much broader knowledge in a range of outdoor pursuits.
