Pro Development Program PDP
Outward Bound Lumut professional development programme focuses on character building, personal development and team working. In the wilderness classroom, participants will focus their energy on the essential elements of themselves and resources, their interaction with others and task at hand. The importance of appropriate action, decision making and the consequences are very real and obvious. This provides an opportunity for participants to live and work closely – on original and challenging projects where they probably have had no previous technical experience. They are dependent upon their ability to manage themselves and the situation at hand.
Therefore, through experiential education, experiences are shared, reviewed and positive characteristics are identified and adopted. Using “Kolb’s Learning Cycle” as a model, participants get accustomed to a simple system of planning, doing, reviewing, concluding and transferring.
Tailor-made PDP programmes are conducted all year round to meet the specific needs of the clients. With many key functions within organisations depending on cohesive and productive working teams, Outward Bound Lumut PDP programme focuses on developing the individual first then the team to meet common aims and goals. Factors of age and experience will be incorporated and thus all activities though demanding , will be within the natural abilities of the average individual.

Our team of instructors are well equipped with Malaysian Medical Association-trained Expired Air Resuscitation (EAR) and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), Red Crescent-trained first-aid and Malaysian Life Saving Society trained in water competency and life saving. With most of our instructors being graduates from various fields and the exposure of instructing in other Outward Bound Schools around the globe, certainly provides better avenue for participants to learn, share and transfer the knowledge and experiences.
