Adventure Tourism 100 Hours Certificate Course
are Learning Materials provided on a Memory Stick, still should the study be done online?
It's good to hear from you.
All learning materials are online and everyone gets access to this option. The memory stick is an optional extra for those who would also like the convenience of having the course on media that can be used offline.
Please note that the online version allows students to download the materials and save to their computers, so a memory stick is really only required if you want to have everything in one place.

Until recently, adventure tourism has been perceived to be a younger person’s activity. However, older people in recent years are keen to enjoy new travel experiences once their children have left home. The degree of challenge desired may be quite different. Some will balk at undertaking potentially dangerous activities like walking on a rope bridge across a deep ravine, and find a trek through the jungle at ground level sufficiently challenging. Some will find another’s ‘adventure’ decidedly unpleasant, disagreeable, foolishly reckless, traumatic or boring. It is clear that adventure tourism has no distinct boundaries.
