Education

Bring valuable training programs to your community led by experienced practitioners who teach from their own experiences. Custom AdventureEDU programs are led by professionals within the adventure travel community and not only help elevate your suppliers’ offerings and business savvy, but help foster community among like-minded companies that should be working together. At previous AdventureEDU programs, we’ve worked with tourism boards to bring together high-quality groups of suppliers in pursuit of a common goal and facilitated community development beyond expectations.

What We Do

ATTA´s approach includes a multi-format solution: a wide range of sector-relevant content including safety and risk management, adventure guide training, experience and service design, product development, and much more. In order to make the content delivery more effective, we use a customized combination of educational formats. This proven methodology enhances audience performance and supports practical implementation.

AdventureEDU is ATTA’s hands-on learning program, with a robust portfolio of training solutions to help your destination thrive and become more competitive, whether you’re still at an early stage of growth in the adventure travel market or you are already a global leader. These tailored programs are designed to improve destinations’ market readiness and help suppliers and entrepreneurs position themselves for success in the industry.

From self-paced online courses to custom, in-person training events to help your best suppliers improve and attract more high-quality visitors, we can help you identify areas where training can take your destination to the next level and then execute a plan to get there.

Our educators are best-in-class practitioners: adventure travel company owners, expert guides, and DMOs whose experience informs best practices worldwide.

Virtual courses are ATTA’s most flexible education format. Using the same source content as in-person courses, virtual programs allow you to offer our educational programs at scale.

Our programs are led by trusted advisors and experts and dive deep on topics including risk management, improving sustainability practices, creating self-guided itineraries, guide training, business management, and more.
