Dreaming of a Career in the great outdoors?
Fairbridge Outdoor Recreation Department supports FoA because there is a need for people/clients to gain experience, qualifications and training in outdoor activities in varies disciplines and locations. Some of our clients who come through us may have limited experience and even after formal training need to gain more. FoA is a fun, safe and modern way of doing this.
FoA also gives people an opportunity to gain formal qualifications over a 12 month period, which can be achieved in their own time and pace. Having Markus and Sarah who can assess my clients and students, or offer extra training is a great resource and helps us as a RTO with the validation process.
We offer a $200 student fee to FoA, which lasts for 12 months, so they can be a Fairbridge Student for one year, and then charge only $35 per unit. It’s almost sounds like pay as you go.
Ways in which FoA have helped us at Fairbridge:
- Staff training
- Assisted and run National recognised training & assessment courses
- Experience for trainees running groups outside of their normal work environment
- Assisted us in running our student Cert III course camp
- Equipment use and training
