The program is set up so you can study full time one month at a time for up to 6 months. Alternatively modules can be completed at different times according to your schedule.
The program allows you to get the “hands on” training experience that is crucial to gaining employment in the wilderness tourism industry. This is done on site in our operating wilderness guest ranch environment.
The Wilderness and Ranch Management Training Program is designed to cover every aspect of a wilderness lodge operation. We have refined the program into three departments. The kitchen department covers cooking, serving, housekeeping and wilderness applications. The office department covers basic administration duties, accounts, reservations and sales and marketing. The ranch operations department covers maintenance, animal husbandry, natural resources and seasonal operations. Each department has four modules and progresses from entry-level duties to a management level. In each department, you will be challenged with unexpected scenarios facilitated by living in a remote wilderness location. These will test your problem-solving skills and will mean you need to be flexible and adaptable. A solution-orientated mindset, positive attitude and a responsible and initiative-taking mentality are intangible skills that you will need to thrive in this environment.
