NOLS specializes in teaching teachers. In fact, we have been inspiring and teaching outdoor educators for 45 years.
We expect Outdoor Educator Course graduates to be competent and responsible wilderness leaders and travelers familiar with NOLS' outdoor education techniques and philosophies. They should be able to supervise novices during a basic wilderness experience.
Each course is unique, due to variables such as route, group dynamics, fitness levels, and environmental conditions. Working with these variables, it is our intent that each student accomplish the following:
• Risk Management and Judgment
• Leadership and Expedition Behavior
• Outdoor Skills
• Environmental Studies
• Climbing Skills
