Adventure Team is a unique training and guide service
offered by Training Solutions International that takes the classroom outdoors. Adventure Team combines physical activity and learning to create an immersive field-based experience for students. Depending on the course option chosen, students will learn skills which they will apply to activities along the way. Skill level and challenges vary based on the complexity of the course and the type of activity chosen. Some courses do require pre-requisite training to ensure competency in basic skills and physical ability. Adventure Team courses vary widely as to what they cover, but many courses integrate common outdoor related topics and skills such as survival, navigation, first aid, and rescue.
Adventure Team provides a variety of course formats, ranging from topic-specific classes, to day outings and multi-day expeditions involving the learning and implementation of a variety of skills.
Classes can be less than a day, or span multiple days. Students usually go home after each class session. Classes typically focus on specific skill set or certification and are more structured than other courses.
Outings are courses that typically last a day or less, but can be longer. Students usually stay overnight on outings that last multiple days. Outings typically involve learning and utilizing several skills.
Expeditions are longer courses ranging in length, but typically last multiple days with students staying overnight for each night of the Expedition. Expeditions typically involve learning and utilizing a wide range of skills.
Tours are courses that focus more on sight-seeing and learning about areas of historical or cultural significance, as well as landmarks and areas of natural beauty. Tours are not as skill focused as other courses, but rudimentary skills are typically still covered.
Adventure Team courses range in difficulty based on the requirements of the course. Course difficulty is based on time duration of the course, physical ability, required equipment and skill proficiency. The level of difficulty is broken down into four categories:
Normal level of physical ability and basic gear. No specific skills are required, but new skills will be learned along the way.
Must have some level of physical ability and some gear may be required. Moderate courses do not typically require upfront knowledge or skills, but typically require the
implementation of skills learned along the way.
Must have good level of physical ability and may require specific equipment. Difficult courses may require upfront knowledge or skills, as well as the implementation of skills learned along the way. Some Difficult level courses may require prerequisites in order to demonstrate proper competency, ability, and skill.
Must have high level of physical ability and may require technical equipment. Advanced courses may require upfront technical knowledge or skills, as well as the implementation of complex skills learned along the way. Advanced level courses may require prerequisites in order to demonstrate proper ability and skill competency.
