OUTDOOR LEADER (OL) CERTIFICATE COURSE

Combining a passion and understanding of backcountry, an Outdoor Leader’s experience ranges from paraprofessionals to extreme adventurists. As a leader in recreation, an Outdoor Leader conducts multi-day excursions within a controlled program.

TRAINING:

WEA is currently revising the training plan for this certificate.

CERTIFICATE:

The WEA Outdoor Leader Certificate Course is not a certification program. Participants do not receive formal certification, but a certificate of completion. 

ASSESSMENT:

Participants are assessed by the Certified Outdoor Educator (COE); the focus of feedback is on identifying strengths and stretches in the individual’s current leadership skill set and providing advice and encouragement along the path of professional development both within and beyond the WEA model.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT:

Outdoor Leaders are able to further their development by enrolling in WEA’s accredited Outdoor Educator training program. Commensurate with outdoor experience, Outdoor Leaders are eligible to create an IROEL portfolio and be assessed by a Certifying Examiner without attending a Certified Outdoor Educator program.
