Educational Licensing

OBV has approval from the Department of Education and Training to operate as an educational provider of outdoor learning programs in each of the provinces we operate in Vietnam. This includes government approval of trekking and paddling routes and wilderness campsites. This licensing provides a level of reassurance to schools and parents and indicates we are in full compliance with the laws and regulations of Vietnam as an educational provider.

Outward Bound Licensing

Outward Bound Vietnam recently completed the full licensing requirements of Outward Bound International, including having appropriate risk assessment systems, competent staff, equipment and facilities, and a separate advisory Risk Management Committee. An Outward Bound license includes ongoing periodic inspections and site-reviews and culminates in being awarded an ongoing Certificate of Endorsement every two years.
