Are you or some of your staff interested in working as part of the challenge course industry? For those who are outdoor education students, we are offering a weekend of skills verification followed by an ACCT Level I Certification Exam. Gaining certification indicates that you have demonstrated a set of skills and met certain criteria.

For employers looking to assess an applicant’s skills, this certification is great verification from the challenge course industry. Over a day and a half, we will review, practice, and expand upon the pertinent hard and soft skills necessary for the Level I exam. Because the certification is not site specific it is transferable to different courses. For the exam, there is both a practical and written portion.
