Training & Qualifications

Cornwall based training & qualifications on offer

There has never been a better time, or a better place, to kick start your career on a brand new trajectory into the great outdoors and open water. We offer a wide range of governing body recognised qualifications from our base here in Polzeath Cornwall and Fistral Bay Newquay.

Here at Era Adventures, we’re seasoned professional instructors and fully qualified and international recognised teachers in a variety of outdoor land and water sports including coasteering, beach lifeguarding, surf instructing and mountain biking.

We’re also professional first aiders, and can help you on your way towards competence, confidence and professional safety on any one of our courses.

We’ve all taken these courses ourselves, and have maintained our memberships and status with the correct affiliating and governing associations, so know exactly how it feels when you’re thinking about embarking on a new career or looking to improve on your existing outdoor activity qualifications.

If you’ve got a ton of self-discipline, an insatiable appetite for learning and a genuine love to fuel others with confidence and enable them to enjoy open water sports safely, then you’re definitely an ideal candidate for our qualifications.

Of course a good level of fitness is required (and some perseverance!) but we get an immense amount of pleasure out of seeing you succeed in your final assessments, and will support you every step of the way through a course, whether a two day refresher or intensive 6 day award.

Pick from beach life guarding awards you can travel the world with or outdoor instructor programmes that’ll see you work in a variety of leading positions throughout the UK.

Browse through our course categories above and find your next adventure. You'll find detailed information about the syllabus, prerequisites and outcomes you should expect on completing each of the courses, plus where to go next if you’re only starting to whet your appetite.

As always, if you’re unsure about anything to do with our courses, or want some advice on the best combined package to choose just give us a call on 01208 862 963 or drop us a line through our online booking form and we’ll be back with you as soon as we can…. We hope to see you on one of our courses soon!
