Humber’s Recreation and Leisure Services diploma program provides you with the skills needed to start your career in government, not-for-profit and commercial recreation organizations. You will learn about recreation programming, special event management, staff management, facility operations, marketing and other services within the industry.
The curriculum is designed with industry collaboration, ensuring it is current and relevant. Within the program, students use ActiveNet software and PerfectMind, the most widely used registration management software in the recreation industry.
Students apply their skills by planning and implementing events for local community and charity organizations. A one-day leadership camp at Pursuit OCR helps build communication and leadership skills while guest speakers, practical training and field trips provide added benefits in preparing you for the workplace.
Learning from professors, as well as managers and directors of recreation programs, centres and agencies will give you valuable exposure to the industry and training in current issues.
