Johan Hovelynck





Johan combines work as a process consultant with a specialization in outdoor training. His passion for experiential learning and the outdoors brought him to Outward Bound early in his work life. He lead groups for several European, American and African Outward Bound Schools and acted as a safety review leader for Outward Bound International. Johan took his first WMA course when working in North Carolina in 1989 and was part of introducing WMA’s curricula in Europe the following years. Keeping his focus on accident prevention during programs, he gained first-aid experience as an EMT.

Johan was a member of the local cave rescue and rock rescue systems. He is an instructor in the state certificate training for caving and canyoneering guides (VTS) and a safety auditor for the Belgian federations for outdoor providers (BFNO) and adventure tourism (WANT).
