Our Field Guiding/Game Ranging Course is the most comprehensive course of its kind offered anywhere in the world.
It is the perfect course for those entering the industry and for those looking to fully prepare for their FGASA Theory Exams (including Apprentice Field Guide (NQF2), Field Guide (NQF4) and Professional Field Guide – previously levels 1, 2 and 3).
This course is written and based on the FGASA Specialist Field Guide (Previously known as FGASA Level 3) syllabus, as outlined by The Field Guiding Association of South Africa (FGASA).
This course is also designed for those who want to upskill their current knowledge, add value to their CV or simply want to learn more about the bush, online and in their own time!
FGASA still require that applicants wanting to gain a FGASA qualification do the following:
In this way, you can gain the required legal National qualification issued by CATHSSETA through FGASA.
FGASA is an accredited Training assessor with CATHSSETA (The Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sports Education & Training Sector) however, FGASA itself does not carry out the formal training programmes.
This is where the FGASA Endorsed Training providers, such as WildlifeCampus provide the training bridge.
You may join FGASA, write the exams and be practically assessed without having completed a WildlifeCampus course, but many candidates are found not competent (75% required), unless they already have good wildlife knowledge.
Certificates earned by completing the WildlifeCampus Guiding Courses do bear the FGASA logo, but do not provide the graduate with a FGASA qualification.
