SIS - Adventurous Activities Qualifications

Now that the SIS adventurous Activity survey has closed the next step is the holding of several information sessions to give you all, some of the answers you need on how to obtain your SIS qualifications before the December 31 cut off date. These sessions are to give Leaders / Rovers and Vennies an understanding of the SIS system, what they need to do to take members out into the bush, how to get the qualifications and most importantly explain the RPL process. All this has been very slow in coming and hopefully we can address all these issues for you.

The Information Nights have been held.

Next step – the RPL SESSIONS.

  • What is RPL?  Recognition of Prior Learning – taking into account your previous experience


  • Try to get to this session, the team have put a lot of effort into helping leaders and rovers achieve the new qualifications.
