OUTDOOR ADVENTURES INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS
FAU Outdoor Adventures program offers several instructional programs throughout the year. One of the goals of Outdoor Adventures is to empower individuals to explore the outdoors in a safe and informed manner. We offer scheduled programming and custom programs for individual groups.
Scheduled programming includes our trip leader and facilitator trainings. Currently our trip leader training is only offered to FAU students applying to become trips leaders for FAU Outdoor Adventures. Challenge Course Facilitator training is offered each fall and spring and is open to anyone wanting to learn more about group facilitation or individuals seeking employment at the FAU Challenge Course*.
* This training is not affiliated with ACCT certification. Participants may choose to “challenge in” for an ACCT level 1 certification after this course. http://acct.affiniscape.com/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=87
