Wilderness Leader Onîkânohtêw
Onîkânohtêw is a Cree word for ‘Leader’.
Part of this course is inspired by the Cree people.
You can use this course as a stepping stone to become a WGA International Wilderness Guide.
But, after you finished this course you can already start guiding in different areas of the world (including the Rocky Mountain National Parks).
The course is made of different short courses, and these course combined will lead to the Certification ‘Wilderness Leader’.
