We are  pleased to be able to offer Qualifications to Volunteers of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (The Duke of Ed) from all over Australia. A special welcome to Adventure Journey Volunteers from Queensland for whom we are able to provide heavily subsidised training due to the partnership in place with the Queensland State Award Office.

The course provides the following nationally recognised units of competency:

  • SISXRSK301A – Undertake risk analysis of activities
  • SISXOHS101A – Follow occupational health and safety policies
  • SISXEMR201A – Respond to emergency situations

When this course is completed we will send out a Statement Of Attainment (SOA) for the above units. After you have completed practical training and have a SOA for the remaining units that make up the skillset you require, we will be able to issue you with a Statement of Attainment for that Skillset.

When choosing a Registered Training Organisation to provide the practical units you require, you will need to ensure the course provides all the units required for that specific skillset.
