Supersedes SIS40313 - Certificate IV in Outdoor RecreationNot equivalent.Title changed.Some units moved from core to electives as they are not essential skills for all leaders. Some units within core and elective groups removed as they were too complex for this level.First aid unit moved from core to electives.Some basic activity groups removed as these are not relevant to leaders, with specialist technical skills, working at this level, e.g. snorkelling, bushwalking on easy grade tracks.Reduced numbers are required to achieve the qualification (from 31 to 27 units). Elective groups simplified. This reflects consolidation of many units within the Training Package.Packaging rules provide more flexibility. 10/Sep/2019

Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of highly skilled outdoor recreation leaders who lead and supervise dependent participants in recreational activities according to activity plans, which they develop.

These leaders are proficient in recreational activity techniques and have well-developed leadership skills to manage group participation, cohesion, operational logistics, risk and significant problems as they arise. While actions are limited by the parameters of plans, policies and procedures, they work with a considerable amount of autonomy.

This qualification reflects the role of leaders who can work at or close to base but often work in remote areas distant from support. Communication systems may be unreliable and assistance from medical and emergency services may not be readily available. They are expected to make high level independent judgements about logistical, technical, safety and emergency response issues.

This qualification provides a pathway to work for any type of organisation that delivers outdoor recreation activities including commercial, not-for-profit and government organisations.

The skills in this qualification must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State or Territory legislation, Australian standards and industry codes of practice.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Packaging Rules

27 units must be completed:

  • 12 core units
  • 15 elective units, consisting of:
  • all the units in any two Groups A to AH
  • the remaining elective units can be selected from Groups A to AH, Group AI elsewhere in the SIS Training Package, or from any other current training package or accredited course.
