Are you interested in earning college credit for things you already love to do? Each year Josh Kling instructs courses with the Outdoor Leadership and Recreation (OLER) program at San Juan College in Farmington New Mexico. In the past courses have included Introduction to Lead Climbing, Introduction to Mountaineering, Avalanche and Hut Clinic Level 1, and High Altitude Mountaineering.
The (OLER) program at San Juan College is designed to provide an Associate of Arts Degree in Outdoor Leadership with a variety of transfer options. OLER classes are not limited to degree seeking students,. Faculty/Staff and community members are welcome and encouraged to participate in the classes.
The Associate of Arts Degree in Outdoor Leadership Program combines general education requirements with a core group of field based classes in outdoor leadership and recreation. These classes are experiential in nature, meaning that you will learn the skills through participation in various activities. Although these classes are lots of fun, you will learn a great deal about yourself, your peers, the educational value of the experience, and how you can become an effective professional in the field.
The mission of the San Juan College Outdoor Leadership and Recreation Program is to provide students an education in adventure and outdoor recreation leadership that is consistent and up to date with industry standards and trends. We focus on the development of outdoor skills, teaching techniques, and leadership.
