Rocky Mountain Outdoor Educator with WFR

This course explores the high peaks of Wyoming, where you’ll refine the teaching and leadership skills needed to work as a professional outdoor educator.

In the backcountry, you and your coursemates will be responsible for teaching much of the curriculum, from natural history to conflict resolution. You’ll be challenged to experiment with different teaching styles as your peers and instructors provide constructive feedback. Your instructors will teach ongoing classes about risk management and mitigation in various environments.

If you’re seeking an experience to develop your skills as an educator in the outdoors, this is the course for you.
