Challenge Courses Good Practice Guide (AAAS)
AAAS Update: Challenge Courses Good Practice Guide pre-released
Posted on 17.04.2019
The completed Challenge Course Good Practice Guide (low and high ropes) has now been pre-released, prior to the official launch in September 2019. All pre-released documents are available from the australianaas.org.au website home page.
The Challenge Course Good Practice Guide is also available for direct download by clicking HERE.
The outdoor community has actively supported the development of the AAAS and GPG’s so the Steering Committee wanted to make the completed sections available as soon as possible.
Providers can use the pre-released documents to begin reviewing their activity systems well before the Australian AAS are adopted by all jurisdictions.
Official launch and adoptio
The ‘official launch’ is planned for Sept 2019.
It is likely that adoption of the Australian AAS by all States and Territories would then occur early 2020. More detail on the adoption timeline will be released in due course.
What is currently available
Completed documents that are currently available pre-release are:
- Australian Adventure Activity Standard (AAAS)
- Core GPG (Common good practice for all activities)
- Activity specific GPG’s:
These can also be downloaded from the australianaas.org.au home page.
Still to come
Work is continuing on the following GPG’s:
- Sea kayaking
These four GPG’s will be released at the official launch in September 2019.
Thanks to all the TWG members
The Steering Committee wishes to thank all the Technical Working Group (TWG) members for their work and contributions.
This project would not have been possible without the volunteer efforts of all the TWG members.
