#jobs – Why not become an outdoor instructor and guide? Spend your working days teaching kayaking, guiding on trails and mountains or introducing beginners to rock climbing.
Outdoors Ireland are running an intensive part-time Outdoor Instructor & Guide Training Course in Kerry, this October. Aimed at enthusiastic complete beginners; this course is designed to give the skills to produce a quality instructor and guide; employable in both the public and private sectors of outdoor education/adventure tourism.
This training course will also look at modules of setting up an adventure business, adding an adventure business onto an existing hospitality business, plus packaging adventure products, say Outdoors Ireland
Nathan Kingerlee, course director, says 'although it's not all as exciting and fun as it may seem from the outside, I really believe we have the best job in the world! Battling midges occasionally or washing mountains of wetsuits is easily offset by the privilege of working outdoors in spectacular untrodden areas.'
Outdoor education and adventure tourism has held strong through the past years of the bust and is now thriving as more and more people take to the hills, lakes and cliffs.
'It's can be hard to find exceptionally good instructors and guides, despite the number of training courses out there' says Kingerlee, 'I see this from the day to day running of Outdoors Ireland; so this course is about delivering brilliant and focused instructors, who are employable.
