Sport and Recreation and Aquatic and Community Recreation Training Package: Draft 1 Consultation

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Sport and Recreation Industry Reference Committee, is undertaking a comprehensive update of the Sport, Recreation, Aquatic and Community Recreation Training Package Products included in the SIS Sport, Fitness and Recreation Training Package.

Background

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Sport and Recreation Industry Reference Committee, is undertaking a comprehensive update of the Sport, Recreation, Aquatic and Community Recreation Training Package Products included in the SIS Sport, Fitness and Recreation Training Package.

A number of key changes across the sector’s operating and regulatory environment, as well as changes to job role requirements, has meant that the Sport and Recreation & Aquatic and Community Recreation Qualifications within the SIS Training Package are no longer fit for purpose for the sector.

Draft 1 Qualifications, Skill Sets and Units of Competency are therefore being updated in order to:

  • align to contemporary industry job roles
  • provide sufficient flexibility to support multi-skilled instructors
  • reflect current industry practice and trends
  • encourage enrolled learners to complete the Qualifications.
  • The proposed Qualifications include:

    • SIS10122 Certificate I in Sport and Recreation
    • SIS20122 Certificate II in Sport and Recreation
    • SIS30122 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation
    • SIS40122 Certificate IV in Sport and Recreation
    • SIS50122 Diploma of Sport and Recreation Management.
    • Please note: Certificate III in Aquatics and Community Recreation is not included in this update as its content has been merged into SIS30122 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation.
