Do you have a passion for the great outdoors?
Turn your love of adventure and the natural environment into a career! If adventure sparks you into life and you feel at home in the great outdoors - if you love helping people to bring out their best, then bring your enthusiasm to a professional career in outdoor recreation.
Become qualified to work in eco-tourism, adventure tourism, recreation, or education or community settings. Wodonga TAFE's instructors are highly qualified and experienced within their specialisations and passionate about teaching others. Group leadership, safety management and rescue are crucial aspects of outdoor recreation and are taught specific to each activity.
There are two options available to you for completing Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation. Firstly, apply direct to Wodonga TAFE via the 'Apply online now' button in the course information if you want to complete only the Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation. Alternatively, Charles Sturt University offers an integrated program in Outdoor Recreation, with a co-enrolment with Wodonga TAFE, enabling you to graduate with two recognised qualifications. The Bachelor of Applied Science (Outdoor Recreation and Ecotourism) integrated program is designed to enable you to complete TAFE and University study at the same time. Graduates of this course will receive a Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation in addition to their degree. Find out more about the integrated program, including how to apply, via the CSU website.
