We have been training outdoor educators and wilderness guides since 1977. Over the last 40+ years we have had hundreds of students complete COLT and go on to work in all aspects of the industry, here in Canada and around the world. Our alumni are our biggest advocates. Here is a sample of their feedback.
The instructors were amazing as they taught the technical skills and rounded out the learning with communicating the industry standards and expectations.
My most memorable moment was meeting my husband. We were in the same COLT group and are still together 24 years later.
COLT was definitely the catalyst for my lifestyle over the past 20 years. The mix of hard and soft skills instilled during the program has allowed me to thrive in the tourism industry.
We have adopted many of the Strathcona Park Lodge and COLT philosophies into our lifestyle and aspire to implement them through our work!
