In 2017 Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre (TEEC) will
continue to work in partnership with Maroon Outdoor Education Centre (RTO
#32122) to deliver quality training and assessment in outdoor activities for
Teachers and others who work with school students, to meet the leader
requirements of the Education QLD Curriculum Area Risk Assessment Guidelines
The most common areas requested for outdoor activity training
are bushwalking and canoeing. Training and assessment in other activity areas
is possible, contact Phil Harrison at TEEC to discuss your training needs.
Skills Training days are offered for those who want to
undertake Guide level training, but need to refresh the personal skills of the
activity. These days at TEEC usually run on a Thursday from 8:30am to 4:30pm,
immediately before a Guide Training Course.
Guide Training based TEEC usually runs from 5pm on Thursday
through to 4pm on Saturday. Most courses involved an overnight lightweight camp
