Certificate IV in Outdoor Leadership - SIS40619

Outer Eastern Training Institute

Type of institution: Registered Training Organisation
Level: Pre-degree
CRICOS:

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