SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Sport, Fitness and Recreation Industry Reference Committee (IRC), is undertaking a thorough review of all nationally recognised Outdoor Recreation Training Package Products included in the SIS10 Sport, Fitness and Recreation Training Package.

The work was to be completed in two stages:

Stage 1: Update of Equine Units of Competency. The Equine units were approved by the AISC in December 2017.

Stage 2: Update remaining Outdoor Recreation Training Package Products.

SIS Outdoor Recreation training package products are now ready for industry validation and feedback. The validation period will seek to ensure that changes made in Draft 2 reflect feedback received during the consultation period in August and September 2018.

We have had a tremendous contribution from outdoor recreation industry stakeholders. Draft 2 has been informed by input throughout the project from the Outdoor Recreation Technical Advisory Committee, ten Expert Working Groups, consultation forums, individual conversations, National Sport Organisations (where appropriate) and SkillsIQ online Feedback Forum.

The following qualifications and associated products are currently included in Draft 2.

  • Certificate II Outdoor Recreation
  • Certificate III in Outdoor Leadership
  • Certificate IV in Outdoor Leadership
  • Diploma of Outdoor Leadership
  • 7 Skill Sets
  • 153 Units of Competency.

Consultation Activities and Timelines

The national validation process for Draft 2 material was open from 28 February 2019 to 22 March 2019. Throughout this period SkillsIQ hosted a series of webinars to seek stakeholder input.
