Australian Adventure Activity Standards – Update
Nominations for Technical Working Groups, News and Updates
Posted on 02.10.2018
Revised presentation of the Australian AAS
Public consultations have raised issues with the presentation of the Australian AAS. Work on how to improve the presentation and address that feedback has taken over a year.
The revised presentation of the AAS has now been finalised.
To summarise the main change, the presentation is now:
- A ‘Australian AAS – Standard’ – “the Standard”
- A ‘Core Good Practice Guide’ – guidance that supports “the Standard”
- The “activity” ‘Good Practice Guides’ – each activity to have its own good practice guide (GPG).
Call for nominations for members of 4 new technical working groups
The Australian AAS Steering Committee is now seeking nominations to be members of 4 separate Technical Working Groups (TWG) to draft ‘Good Practice Guides’ for:
- Angling – more information
- Caving – more information
- Sea kayaking – more information
- Snorkelling – more information
Nominations are being sought from people with broad expertise and experience in any of these activities. Experience in leadership of the particular activity with dependent participants is essential.
Nominations close 15 Oct 2018 (9.00am AEDT)
