Green Guide Certification Program

Ever dream of a job where your office has a view of the great outdoors? Or even better,  where your office is IN the great outdoors?  If so, the Green Guide Certification course is one path you will want to  explore.

The 90-hour certification course, mixed with both classroom and field trip experiences, is designed for job seekers looking for employment in a nature-based field or entrepreneurs interested in starting a nature-based business.

The course is designed to:

  • Enable guides to provide clients with environmentally and socially responsible nature-based experiences
  • Educate business owners and employees on resource sustainability
  • Create a nature-centered network of guides and program participants
  • Provide accurate information and incorporate up-to-date knowledge and best practices for resource use and conservation 

Individual classes and field trips are also perfect for those who simply wish to learn more about the environment in which we live. 

95% of Green Guide students rated the classes as excellent or very good.  97% would recommend the classes to others.

Here's what former students have to say about the Green Guide Certification classes...
