COVID-19 Announcement: Changes to course delivery. View our Coronavirus updates page.

Take your passion for the outdoors and turn it into a rewarding career with Chisholm's dual award program

Learn, explore and lead in the outdoors with a course in Outdoor Recreation at Chisholm.

Studying Outdoor Recreation at Chisholm provides quality instruction and opportunities for students to gain the skills, knowledge and experience to become professional outdoor leaders.

Whether you’re looking to become an Outdoor Instructor, an Outdoor Education Teacher, or you’re an adventure enthusiast, the Outdoor Leadership courses at Chisholm can offer you pathways into your desired field.

Class sizes are small to maintain a high standard of personal instruction for our students and to limit our impact on the environments where we spend most of our time working and playing.

Our staff have years of experience both internationally and within Australia and keep up with the best industry practises by continuing to work in the outdoor industry when not teaching at Chisholm.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with learning material online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change. Chisholm will be monitoring the situation closely and inform of any changes if the duration of a course is extended.
