The Adventure Studies Program (Adventure Sport Certificate) in Iceland is on university level and takes only eight months, with half the time in practical training in locations all around Iceland. The education has received both domestic and international recognition the last few years with a total of 85 students completing the program in Iceland, including students from close to twenty different nationalities.
 
The program is a solid foundation for all major parts of adventure tourism and benefits especially those that are interested in an introduction to adventure sports, improving current adventure sport skills or exploring the adventure industry as a future career. Next courses begin in August 2019.
