The FGASA Level 1 Nature Guide Qualification is the most sought after qualification required by the guiding industry for employment. The FGASA Level 1 Course also contains the CATHSSETA Nature Site Guide qualification, which is the minimum requirement for guides to register as legal tour guides in South Africa. Beyond Southern Africa’s borders, the higher standard of the FGASA qualification also enjoys recognition in many other countries on and off the African Continent.
While we recommend the longer 1 year or 3 year courses for school leavers, the 10 week course is ideal for older students that have already got some relevant life and work experience.
The course is also ideal for Nature Conservation, Reserve Management, Zoology or Tourism Graduates that want to increase their employability.
