Changes to National Outdoor Leadership Registration Scheme

Posted on 27.08.2020

The Board of the Outdoor Council of Australia (OCA) has recently undertaken a review of the National Outdoor Leadership Registration Scheme (NOLRS). The decision has been taken to phase out NOLRS.

There are currently a number of registrants awaiting renewal of their NOLRS registration, as well as new applicants who require registration under NOLRS as a pre-requisite for outdoor education activities in which they are employed or engaged. To allow for these, the NOLRS phase will take place over the next ten months, ending in June 2021. A summary of the phase out timeline and other details is below:

  • NOLRS is relevant as an award until 30 June 2021;
  • New registrations will be processed up until 29 June 2021 and expire on expiring on 30 June 2021;

N.B. any new applications received up to and including 29 June 2021 will be processed at a charge of one-third of the regular 3-year fee (this applies whether the new registration is for 12 months, 6 months, 3 months etc.);

  • ALL current registrations due to expire between the date of this letter and BEFORE the NOLRS phase out will be extended to 30 June 2021 – no fees and no re-assessment will be required;
  • All current registrations expiring AFTER the NOLRS phase out require no immediate action, however NOLRS will no longer be relevant after 30 June 2021.

Whilst the OCA has no immediate plans to develop a replacement for NOLRS, we are committed to the accreditation of outdoor leaders and would be willing to enter into discussions with other organisations who may be interested in developing an alternative registration scheme for the outdoor sector.
