Outdoor Education

Words of appreciation

My experience was not only thoroughly enjoyable, but I can definitively say that I would not have done as well in class, academically, without Amit as an instructor. He goes the extra mile for his students, and engages them with compassion and excitement. I could not more highly recommend Amit Arora as an experienced and affecting professional instructor. He is the first call I make when in doubt, or excited by a new idea for wilderness and adventure.

My first ever outbound course was under the tutelage of Amit Arora at the Hanifl centre. Over the period of 2 weeks+ I felt Amit had been extremely approachable. He is someone who is very knowledgeable in areas of wilderness medicine, and other outdoor technical know-how. He has been very supportive of every participant and takes keen interest in coaching those who approach him. He is extremely professional and articulate in his mannerisms. I personally have felt that there are very few people like Amit in the outdoor education industry who are humble and nurturing towards their students.

Anuja Gupta, Instructor at INME (student on Outdoor Leadership Course 2017)

I have attended Amit’s sessions on “medical response in the outdoors” and I thoroughly enjoyed his style of delivery which was open, gentle and involving.

As a doctor I found his knowledge and skills up to date with an understanding of different methods for different settings.

His role plays were well designed, conducted and processed. Highly recommended.

I would like to begin with thanking you as It was great for me to refresh my skills under your supervision. I think you are going to take it to another level in India, as we lack a lot in Wilderness Medicine. Your approach towards teaching is very kind, you listen carefully and respond accordingly. Give importance to each and everyone. Having adequate knowledge and experience of teaching wilderness medicine makes it easy for you to give good examples and set relevant scenarios, Through which most of the learning comes.

You know exactly what you are doing. And I think knowing the language Hindi is an advantage, as so far we have very less Hindi speaking wilderness medicine educators in India.
