We are making our Certificate 3 program available to the public for the first time starting in 2017.  Based at Tallebudgera Beach School on the Gold Coast, we are able to offer a Certificate 3 in Outdoor Recreation course that will give you the skills you need to lead groups in the outdoors as well as the techniques and methods you need to help them learn and develop in areas such as teamwork, resilience and self-esteem.  Run over one year, the course is made up of face-to-face training weekends, self paced online training and if required, flexible work experience placements at Tallebudgera Beach School and its Currumbin Campus.  With training being provided online or during activity training weekends along with flexible work experience options, the course has been designed to help you integrate your training with your existing commitments.

We are limiting our student numbers to only 10 students next year so if you think this could be the sort of opportunity you have been looking for please call to book an interview.

Important points to consider:

  • Because of the type of training organisation we are, you will not be able to use government funding such as VET Fee Help or the Certificate 3 Guarantee to subsidise the cost of the course.
  • Cost of full qualification is $2750*.
  • The Activity Specialisations available are Bushwalking, Canoeing, Artificial Climbing, Snorkelling, Surfing and Low Ropes. **

* Payable in quarterly instalments.

** Work Experience opportunities at Tallebudgera Beach School and its Currumbin Campus are limited to Canoeing, Artificial Climbing and Low Ropes.
