Introducing the new...

PURE OUTDOOR INSTRUCTOR TRAINING COURSE (12 Months) Part Time.

OPEN DAY FRIDAY 19th JULY 12pm-4pm : ALL WELCOME

We are holding an open day for anyone interested in finding out more about our training year. Contact us on info@pureoutdoor.co.uk to let us know that you are interested in coming down. Please do come down to ask questions, check if the course is suitable for you and to see what it is all about, even if you may not fancy doing it next year!

Outdoor Instructor Training Scheme @ Pure Outdoor

Our unique in-house training scheme is designed to train a group of up to 6 candidates to become a Peak District Outdoor Instructor during the course of a year.

All being well, by the end of the scheme you would have attended courses aimed at training you to become a Hillwalking, Climbing and Caving Instructor along with a relevant Teaching Qualifcation and First Aid Certificate. This is not the only benefit as there is a huge amount of value added through the mentoring and shadowing side of the scheme along with advice on setting up a new business, outdoor industry advice and help with starting up as a freelance outdoor instructor. The emphasis is not only on giving you the experience to get qualified but also to make you a top instructor.

The scheme is designed as a part-time training scheme that can be achieved in a year alongside work or study. Much of the course will be over weekends with occasional weeks throughout the year. The calendar will be released mid January.

Please enquire if you are interested and we will ask you to tell us a bit of information about yourself and your goals. We will review all applications by December 2013. Apply to: info@pureoutdoor.co.uk.

Application deadline: December 2013

Start Date: March 2014 End Date: March 2015
Minimum Participants: 2 Maximum Participants: 6

Price: 6600

TOTAL Contact Time: 74-80 Days Mandatory: 58 Days

Are you churning out MIAs and MICs from this course?

If not, at least as far as climbing goes, you should consider carefully using the word 'instructor' in your blurb.

In reply to Guy Wilson: All looks great apart from the part where you 'consider' applications.

To be totally, crystal clear, you are judging the paperwork after a deadline and then contacting potential clients?

Even if the people who contact you first have the cash?

cheers

In reply to Guy Wilson: Also, as I'm very interested in applying for this, do clients pay extra for assessment courses, or is this included in the 6k+ fee?

That will definitely swing the decision.

cheers

In reply to Dispater: Hello, thanks for the message. We have no intention of course participants to become MIC or MIA on this course however we are happy with our use of the word instructor in this instance as this course is doing exactly that, delivering training to produce top quality outdoor instructors.

I'm not sure how you can produce top quality outdoor instructors in one year.........

In reply to tatty112: The skills take time to master, but we can give people the best start through building skills, experience and qualifications in a focused year which may otherwise take many.

Regards and thanks for your feedback.
