Vocational Courses

Your Journey to an Awesome Career begins here!!

 

We specialise in adventure based learning and outdoor education courses tailored to suit the needs of those wishing to pursue a career path in the Recreation Industry, and/or up-skill their existing qualifications. These courses are suitable for both newcomers to the industry, as well as those wanting to develop their skills further and/or seeking nationally recognised qualifications.

Our courses and programs have a strong focus on sustainability, environmental issues and human behaviour. We believe that a focus on developing the individual's belief in themselves and recognising the part they play in a team, society and the ecosystem as a whole, allows for positive and creative contributions to our planet.

We design our courses and programs to allow enough time for well structured and meaningful debriefs, in order to provide the deepest level of experiential learning within each session. As such we believe that it is important to translate these core values into our courses for anyone delivering outdoor education. These values will be evident in all aspects of our training, and we hope that anyone partaking will walk away with a greater understanding and a desire to impart these values as they work within the industry.

Courses are run at locations around Perth and throughout WA including; Mountain Quarry in Boya, Statham’s Quarry in Goosebery Hill, Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs, Canning and Swan Rivers and various bushwalking locations throughout Perth and WA. 

 

Our Group sizes run at a ratio of 8 person maximum per 1 instructor.  Courses delivered by Spacechameleon Adventure Co are on behalf of The Outdoor Education Consultants – RTO#40608. https://www.toec.com.au/

 

Which course is best for me?

Short Courses combine elective and core units from both the SIS30619 Certificate III and SIS40619 Certificate IV in Outdoor Leadership.  These courses are recommended for people with current skills and experience in outdoor recreation. Anyone new to the industry or with less than 2 years experience, it is strongly recommended to complete additional units at Certificate III level to gain the skills to be able to lead groups.

Additional units are comprised of the remaining core units at Certificate III or IV level respectively making it easier for participants to complete a full qualification at a later stage.  Any units completed will be credit transferred to a full qualification at no charge. Please contact us for more information on these.
