Online Trails Enthusiast Course

Discover how to walk safely in the presence of wild animals - from the comfort of your home. For five weeks we will take you on a virtual adventure with live lectures from expert instructors as part of the Trails Enthusiast course.

WHY DO THE COURSE?

You will learn about animal behaviour, navigation, wildlife tracking, wilderness safety, and dealing with potentially dangerous animals, to name a few.

Trails Enthusiast Course presents the same course contents of a certified FGASA Trails Guide programme, without having to do the exams and practical assessments.

Online participants will receive lectures from a diverse range of specialist instructors, which will include;

  • In-depth coverage of the Apprentice Trails Guide modules
  • Theory reviews/Quizzes

Live lectures will range between one hour and two hours, with a live Q & A session after each session.
