Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to organise the final operational logistics for any type of outdoor recreation activity before departure. It requires the ability to evaluate the predetermined activity plan, which might be self-developed or developed by others, and to adjust this according to current conditions. It involves the final selection and packing of equipment.

This unit applies to any type of organisation that delivers outdoor recreation activities including commercial, not-for-profit and government organisations.

It applies to individuals who work independently or with limited guidance from others in operational or coordination roles. This includes logistics coordinators and leaders, guides or instructors, who will be responsible for delivering the activity.

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

  • for each of the three group activity sessions, select, complete pre-departure safety and serviceability checks for, and pack the following:
  • activity and personal protective equipment
  • first aid equipment
  • rescue equipment
  • communication equipment
  • utilise options provided in Assessment Conditions to make adjustments to two planned activity sessions after evaluating:
  • participant characteristics and associated risks
  • current weather and other environmental information and associated risks.

Knowledge Evidence

Demonstrated knowledge required to complete the tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit:

  • features and inclusions of activity plans to be considered when finalising operational logistics for an activity:
  • participant profiles
  • equipment lists
  • resource lists
  • risk assessments
  • location and duration of activities
  • sources of information on weather and environmental conditions and how to use to ascertain activity conditions
  • specific to the particular type of outdoor recreation activity:

  • activity and management of risk
  • route
  • selection of equipment including personal protective and rescue equipment
  • local activity venues, sites or locations suited to current conditions

  • easy access at relevant time during activities
  • waterproofing and stowing techniques used to keep clothing and equipment dry during activities.

Assessment Conditions

Skills must be demonstrated in a venue, such as an operational depot, from where recreational activities depart and pre-departure checks and loading take place. This can be:

  • an industry workplace
  • a simulated industry environment set up for the purposes of assessment.

Assessment must ensure use of:

  • real workplace situations, or simulated activities, or case study scenarios that test aspects of this unit that relate to adjusting activity sessions
  • activity, personal protective and rescue equipment specific to the particular type of outdoor recreation activity
  • first aid equipment
  • navigation equipment, where relevant
  • communication equipment including equipment for emergency response
  • specific to particular activity sessions:
  • participant profiles
  • activity plans
  • equipment lists
  • resource lists
  • risk assessments to include known and anticipated hazards, risks and control measures
