If your qual is current (i.e. within 2 years of having completed your original course), you will be eligible to UPGRADE your certification to the LWFA (7 day) level. The LWFA qualification is recognised as the de facto standard for outdoor educators in Australia. If you are intending to work for organisations like OEG, OBA, Southbound or other large organisations, holding LWFA card will be looked on favorably. Once you have reached the LWFA level, you could even upgrade once again to the WFR (10 day) level! Added to the skills and knowledge you would have gained on your AWFA course, you will also learn:

  • Litter packaging and long term spinal management
