Who is Fresh Air Educators®?

Fresh Air Educators® is a team of fun, friendly people who love the great outdoors and helping people enjoy it safely.

Our company was started in 1999 by Larry and Brent McNamee, a Canadian father and son duo with a passion for fishing and hunting, and a vision for making boating safety education more accessible by taking it online.

Today our team includes more than 40 course development and support professionals located across Canada and the United States.

Fresh Air Educators® works with government agencies and school districts across North America to develop groundbreaking online courses that have real impacts on enrollment, completion and retention of students.

We've worked with Minnesota's Department of Natural Resources to build the world's first virtual hunting field day. We've worked with the Florida Virtual School to develop an online outdoor education class for high school credit. We can help you too!

Where can you find our courses?

Where can you find our offices?

Fresh Air Educators® is headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario—Canada's beautiful national capital.

The Ottawa area is home to 1.3 million people, a thriving high tech industry, and more culture than you can shake a stick at. But it's also only a hop, skip and a jump away from rivers, lakes, forests, and national parks (just check out that map). Say hello to some serious after work outdoors fun!

We're also proud to have team members located right across North America, from Colorado to Florida, and we're always thrilled when they come to visit. And you're welcome to pop by anytime too!
