Adventure Tourism qualifications aim to provide students with the technical skills and knowledge needed to become a guide or instructor in their chosen specialty. Therefore, courses vary greatly depending on whether you are interested in becoming a glacier guide, rafting or kayaking guide, climbing instructor, ski or snowboard instructor, etc.

Alternatively, Adventure Tourism Management qualifications aim to leave you with the knowledge and skills required to manage a successful adventure tourism business. Adventure Tourism Management qualifications tend to cover many of the core topics of the industry, as well as specialised information related to adventure tourism. This may include topics such as health and safety, tourism marketing, business administration skills, and the information technology utilised in adventure tourism businesses. In addition, some courses also cover a mixture of theoretical and technical skills related to the practical side of the industry. Essentially, you may find yourself outdoors learning how to become a guide or instructor, as well as in the classroom learning how to run a business.
