The additional qualification as outdoor instructor is a training, which is developed using a methodology of learning through experience or the so-called Experiential pedagogy. It introduces a different concept of education. In its essence, it constitutes acquisition of new knowledge and skills based on the freshly obtained experience, experimentation, the development of each separate individual’s teamwork abilities and personal qualities.

 

In the light of our long-term experience in this field we, the Nomadia team, are convinced that with the help of experiential pedagogy the trainees will unfold, rather than lose, their most valuable qualities, will acquire many new sets of knowledge and skills, will come across the most cherished values of human society, will enjoy unforgettable experiences, which will make a positive impact to their lives. The methodology is suitable for people of various age groups, from pre-school kids to senior citizens, and can be defined as a form of lifelong learning.

 

The course program has been prepared under the model established by the German Association for Experiential Pedagogy. As stipulated in the Association’s requirements on the additional qualification of experts, the participants are coached for 150 training hours split into several modules. This basic course provides the most fundamental knowledge and skills for the work as instructor. It includes 4 obligatory modules to be covered within 4 weekends spread across 5months. In addition, the participants attend 2 days module “Water activities”, one day training in pre-hospital first aid, one day hospitation, one praxis project and get to know some basic legal and insurance aspects of the instructor’s work.
