Why Cornwall Outdoors?

We have been providing adult outdoor training courses for over twenty-five years and as major employer in the industry we know exactly what is required to make an impact on your CV. 

Our bespoke adventure training model looks to ensure that every candidate completes the winter with a fist-full of high-level NGB assessments that will enhance your job prospects immediately, putting you head-and-shoulders above your peers.

We can offer free accommodation for the first four weeks to anyone needing to re-locate to attend the course.

Outdoor Instructor Training Course

Our unique model will prepare you for your training, at mid-course and then go on to provide the all-important assessment courses in the final weeks. This way we can create an individual action plan for the second half of your course that will push you forwards to your final assessments and qualifications.

How do we do this?

As a new instructor breaking into the outdoor and adventurous activities industry it is hard to focus on too many activities at once. At the Delaware Centre of Cornwall Outdoors we have focused on all of the important and achievable land-based adventurous activities that are needed throughout the South West. They each complement one-another and combine to be a winning employable package for you to keep.

Each awarding body has requirements that you need to achieve before you can attain training or assessment. We have made allowance within the training model to ensure that you are given ample opportunity to gain all of the pre-requisite days and sessions for your NGB logbooks, without exception. This is how we stand out from the crowd, by selling you exactly what you need to achieve, real qualifications.
