SIS30413 Certificate III in

Outdoor Recreation

Full time duration: up to 2 years ­  Your fee estimate*:

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual to be competent in guiding outdoor recreation activities in a controlled environment. It requires technical knowledge of the outdoor recreation activity to be transferred to allow individuals to safely participate in the outdoor activity. It does not provide the skills and knowledge to impart the required level of technical knowledge and expertise to allow participants to independently undertake outdoor recreation activities.

A guide operating in a controlled environment has the skills, knowledge and experience to work autonomously within a closely defined range of skilled operations involving known routines, methods and procedures, where a small amount of discretion and judgement is required in the selection of equipment, services or contingency measures. This person may work independently only within clearly defined contexts where there are clearly defined Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and relevant documented guidelines, key safety features and risk management procedures for the specific activity location, they are familiar with those SOPs, and where assistance is available should a non-routine situation arise.

Work can be undertaken either autonomously or as part of a team under supervision. This supervision can be on or off site and would provide support to deal appropriately with unplanned or unexpected events. Work would be undertaken in field locations with clearly defined site specific situations such as camps, recreation centres or facilities or fields on various public lands. Work may be undertaken in differing environments such as water-based, dry land and mountainous terrains, using a diverse range of equipment.
