Training Program

Recreation North has designed a training program based on thirteen competencies that are essential for leading in community recreation. If you live in Yukon, NWT or Nunavut, and work or would like to work or volunteer in recreation, this Program is designed for you. (See below about a Provincial Pilot being launched.)

You now have the option of registering for one or more learning events. Those taking learning events have the option of working towards a Certificate in Northern Recreation Leadership. To receive your certificate you need to complete the following  12 learning events. Each learning event will have 2 one-hour conference calls on Thursday’s.

Learning events cost $45/learning event for RPA Members. Learning events cost $55/learning event for NON-RPA Members.

Other learning events available are:
BF 102 – Proposal Writing
BF 103 – Report Writing
PM 101 – Promote Your Programs and Events
RM 102 – Use Documentation in Rural and Remote Recreation
RM 103 – Understand Legal Risk in Recreation
SV 101 – Find and Keep Volunteers

Learning events are generally delivered on a one-year cycle. If your organization would like to request a learning event(s) specific for your group of people please contact our Program Manager.
