Venturer Scouts Pathway to Certificate II in Outdoor Recreation

Venturer Scout Badges and Outdoor Recreation Qualifications

 

Scouting pathway

Any member of Scouts Australia who has sufficent evidence can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). The enrolment Process is outlined on the SAIT Qualifications page. 

Experiences and learning received by Venturers, Rovers and Leaders across Australia, aligns closely to the requirements of the Certificate II in Outdoor Recreation. A typical pathway that enables collection of valid evidence is a Venturer, Rover or Leader;

After completing your enrolment with the Scouts Australia Institute of Training (SAIT), a SAIT assessor will be assigned to you and they will assess your evidence. They may ask for further evidence or have a conversation with you to gather further information about your experiences.

Upon successfully completing your Recognition of Prior Learning assessment, you will receive a Certificate II in Outdoor Recreation (SIS20213).

Structure of the Qualification

The Certificate II in Outdoor Recreation requires 15 units of competency. 5 Core units of competency are required and a further 10 electives means that there can be variation in the exact outcomes that each person achieves.
