Certification Programs

The New Hampshire Outdoor Learning Center is dedicated to helping you become the best you can be on the water and in the field.  That mission is the driving influence behind all of our advanced outdoor education programs.   Over 3 years in development, we have created and bundled specific workshops and classes tailored to your areas of interest and now offer intense certification packages that will not only challenge you but give you the expertise and recognition you want as a serious outdoor enthusiast.  Much like the highly regarded Certified Master Outdoorsman Program, you will participate in deep-dive classroom knowledge training taught by active licensed Maine and New Hampshire guides, biologists, and subject matter experts, followed by hands-on field work.  Each class comes with a written exam that will round out the learning experience and further engrain your new found knowledge.  After successfully completing all of the classes including the written exams you will take a final written exam covering all of the classes and sit for an oral board exam administered by the Board of Certified Master Outdoorsmen.  Warning: these programs are not easy and require an above average level of commitment to outdoor skills enhancement.  They are specifically designed to make you an expert in your field.
