Just The Qualification For You


For all those out there who are constantly told by parents or spouses to stop wasting time on adventure activity and to instead work on getting a qualification, today's post is dedicated to you. GOOD NEWS, you can now achieve a recognised academic qualification doing what you do best, abseiling down cliffs, skydiving and sitting on the beach checking out the waves Mmmmman.

The South African Qualifications Authority (Saqa) have registered a one year level four course at the same level as matric to be administered at technical colleges. It is aimed at those wanting a career in the tourism, travel, hospitality, gaming and leisure industry.

Saqa have said that the hospitality education and training authority would identify suitable course designers to map out a curriculum. Activities students will be expected to learn would include conducting an adventurous activity, navigating in natural environments, and setting up a camp site.

There's no getting away from it, people who are able to succeed in making a career out of doing what they love most, go through life a lot happier than those caught in the rat race. Perhaps this qualification is not a bad place to start.
