Design Your Course
NOLS Professional Training is here to meet your learning objectives! We work with you to determine your needs and provide a format specially designed just for your group, whether you want to focus on leadership and teamwork or develop solid outdoor skills.
We will design your custom course around the following:
• Course Dates & Group Size
• Course Location
• Activity or Learning Objective
• Course Length
Course Dates and Group Size
Course dates and group size may affect the possibility of designing a course in a specific location or around a specific skill. For example, Alaska hiking courses only run in the summer months with an optimum group size of 9 to 12 people. If you know your course dates and/or desired group size, contact our program coordinators to discuss options.
We can bring our expert educators to you, or you can join us in one of our wilderness classrooms all over the world. Though not limited to, NOLS Professional Training operates most economically near the following NOLS locations:
- Southwest (Arizona)
- Teton Valley (Idaho)
- Pacific Northwest (Washington)
- Rocky Mountains (Wyoming)
- Northeast (Adirondack Mountains)
- Baja, Mexico
- Brazil (The Amazon)
- India (Himalayas)
- New Zealand
- Patagonia, Chile
- East Africa (Tanzania)
Activity or Learning Objective
Each location offers unique opportunities to learn various technical outdoor skills, from backpacking and mountaineering to sea kayaking and sailing.
Regardless of the course location or skill learned, your NOLS course will foster leadership development among participants. At NOLS, leadership isn’t just a concept to be studied and pondered; we give you and your group the tools to be leaders. What you learn here are leadership qualities you’ll carry with you the rest of your life.
NOLS Professional Training provides custom courses ranging from 1-day on-site Leadership Trainings to 30-day Wilderness Expeditions.
