responsible for paying your own memberships

Yes! You will be more experienced, more
qualified, and will have a wider understanding
of how outdoor centres work and what
instructors are expected to do. We will also
make you aware of what opportunities exist for
employment, both in the next few years and
later if you choose to continue a career in
the outdoor industry. There is a need every
year for new instructors in the outdoors.

instructor training programmes, and from
recommendation, but of course no absolute
guarantee can be made.
