Certificate III Outdoor Recreation at Lithgow Campus

The Certificate 3 in Outdoor Recreation provides the training required to enter a career in the Outdoor Recreation Industry. Graduates of Certificate 3 could expect to gain entry level employment in Outdoor Adventure Guiding or Outdoor Education. Students need no prior formal skills training in Outdoor Recreation to enter this course but must have an active interest in being outdoors. A moderate level of fitness is required to complete the practical component of the course.

Initially students will be able to borrow some of the equipment required for the course. However, students should expect to purchase personal equipment throughout the year such as a backpack and raincoat. Those students seeking employment on completing the course would be expected to provide their personal equipment upon entering the workforce.

A Certificate 3 Course will be offered over one semester (Semester 1 commences on 30 Jan 2020 and finishes in June 2020) This  course is taught in the classroom at Lithgow College, and  through practical field trips at various venues including Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands and Hawkesbury Region.  Students will also gain significant “life skills” especially in leadership, teamwork, problem solving, self-sufficiency, first aid and interpersonal skills. We also range for you 15 days across 3 weeks of vocational placements with our Industry partners, which often leads to paid work for our students.

This course is equivalent to a full time pattern of study, averaging 3-5 days each week.  You do not need to be based in Lithgow to complete this course.  However, you need to be easily able to access this region for field trips and classroom days. Once you have completed your Certificate 3 you can transition into our Certificate IV Course in Outdoor Recreation.
