Why study Cert. II in Outdoor Recreation?

Research shows that healthier and happier students do better in school, and that education is an important determinant of future health. But education is not just about lessons within the four walls of a classroom. The outdoor environment encourages skills such as problem solving and negotiating risk which are important for student development.


Facilities, Equipment and Software:

Outdoor Education uses both classroom and off campus learning environments to provide authentic experiences for assessment of competency. Such environments include Fraser Island, Great Keppel Island, Cooloola National Park, Brooyar State Forest and Aldershot Scout Camp.
