About JMBS Certifications

Jack Mountain Bushcraft School certifications are based around our existing courses. They are objective skill assessments and consist of strict documentation standards and addition research and work that demonstrate a comprehension that goes far beyond just being present for the course. They are physically and intellectually challenging and require significant documentation, physical labor and academic work. They are designed for those wishing to become industry professionals, not for those with a casual interest or the intellectually lazy.

Documented, Verified Learning And Experience.

Our certifications exist alongside our scheduled programs. Students pursuing certification are held to a higher standard with regard to documentation and demonstrating mastery of the material.

Journeyman Bushcraft Guide Certification Program

For students on the Wilderness Bushcraft Semester.

Boreal Snowshoe Expedition Certification Program

For students on the Boreal Snowshoe Expedition.

Wilderness Canoe Expedition Certification Program

XI – Expedition Instructor Certification Program

For those who have received the previous three certifications, the XI certification is the highest certification we offer. It consists of the combination of the other three certifications with the addition of academic work.
