FGASA Field Guide (NQF4) Course

Bushveld Training Adventures is accredited by FGASA as a training provider and assessor of field guides and environmentalists. Although its principal objective is the training of field guides, it also makes provision for the nature and environmental enthusiast who may not want to become a guide but who is interested in learning more about the natural environment. Our primary objective is to educate people and foster in them a love and interest in nature and the natural environment. In so doing we promote the preservation of our country’s beautiful natural heritage.

The Field Guide (NQF4) (previously known as FGASA Level 2) course is based on and structured according to the FGASA and CATHSSETA requirements for the skills programme: Nature Site Guide (NQF4).

This theoretical course is presented over 22 days.  A large part of the course consists of lectures combined with mentoring and other classroom activities, followed by written tests and/or assignments. The different modules offered are structured to make optimal use of the available time. The course is further aimed at allowing the course attendee to write the FGASA theory examination with confidence during the special Field Guide examination sitting scheduled at the end of the course.

Practical assessments will not take place during the course.
