UATL Conversion (White Water Rafting) – Step 3 (Gap Training)

Course Description
This course is the final step of three for UATLs to achieve civilian accreditation for SIS40619 Certificate IV in Outdoor Leadership.

This qualification reflects the 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 roles 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, no-for-profit and government organisations.

The following UATL disciplines are applicable:

  • Roping and Climbing.

  • Roping and Caving.

  • Roping and Canyoning.

  • Whitewater Kayaking.

  • Whitewater Rafting.

  • Sea Kayaking.

  • Back Country Skiing and Snow Survival.


This course will be cluster of units that are required to achieve the packaging rules of the full qualification. A total of 27 units are required (12 core and 15 electives). The number of units gained through Steps 1 and 2 will depend on the UATL discipline/s. These units will provide Credit Transfer towards the qualification leaving a gap of units to be completed.

Licensing/Regulatory Information - No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of endorsement.
