Successful students have the opportunity to be able to register as a SITE guide with DEAT for Kruger Park and surrounding reserves
As of July 2011 the minimum length of a FGASA endorsed course will be set at 60 days plus a further 30 days for other aspects, totaling 90 days. With this in mind, Antares has restructured our programme to ensure that our long-standing endorsement with FGASA is maintained.
The course will still follow the syllabus as set out by FGASA , The Field Guides Association of Southern Africa.
The subjects that will be covered are diverse, covering topics such as astronomy, geology, anything to do with fauna and flora and a host of others. Emphasis will be placed on practical guiding techniques as well as theoretical training. Although only endorsed by FGASA to a level 1 standard, the depth of knowledge taught will be between a level 2 and level 3. The students will spend Monday-Friday learning and have the weekends in which to catch up on any extra revision they require or just to unwind and get themselves ready for the week ahead. With the increase in available time to learn about the various subjects, we will concentrate on encouraging debate and discussion about the topics, exposing students more to practical components and accessing additional media to boost knowledge levels.
