After a lot of thought and discussions with students, we’re scrapping our current Journeyman Certification Program. Instead of being based on a 4-week summer field course, the Journeyman Certification will now be based on the Wilderness Bushcraft Semester in the fall. Like the XI (Expedition Instructor Certification), it will be comprised of benchmarks, minimum competencies and documented background research.
We continue to strive toward eliminating redundancy in our programs, and drawing a clear line between our programs aimed at a general audience and our professional development and certification programs.
As a result of the shift, we’ll be adding several programs to our summer schedule. Details on these to follow shortly.
