Today, on World Freedom Day, EcoTraining is challenging you to redefine your idea of freedom. While the world commemorates freedom on this day, we believe that true freedom is found in the heart of the bush, where conservation and nature unite in perfect harmony.
Instructor, Richard Davis’ true freedom means connecting with nature on a deeper level.
“Our days are only regulated by the rising and setting of the sun and this just allows us to get back in tune with nature and embrace freedom.” says Davis.
Imagine walking in the footsteps of a field guide or diving deep into the intricate ecosystems that make up Mother Nature herself. Whether you are a budding conservationist or simply an enthusiast, EcoTraining offers you the key to your own version of freedom.
The Professional Field Guide Course allows you to work with highly qualified instructors and complete a series of separate certificate courses in wilderness medicine, animal tracking, advanced rifle handling, FGASA Nature site guide NQF2 training, FGASA Apprentice Trails Guide training and advanced birding.
These subjects are taught through exciting wilderness walks and game drives each day as well as interesting lectures in their open-air bush classroom in up to four camps.
The course also included a 5- to 6-month placement programme where you’ll get to work with professional staff and management at a property in order to develop your newly acquired skills. This hands-on experience will be invaluable as you put your skills to the test and gain real-world experience in the field.
At the end of the course graduates will walk away with practical experience in the safari industry, a variety of certificates and invaluable knowledge.
