Leadership, organisational and specialist activity skills such as outdoor recreation and fitness will be developed throughout the program.

Course Objectives

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual wishing to work in the sport and recreation industry in areas such as maintaining grounds and playing surfaces, providing customer service, facilities maintenance and administrative assistance. This qualification also provides pathways for multi skilled roles which combine a range of activities required to support the operation of facilities such as fitness centres, outdoor sporting grounds or complexes, aquatic centres and community recreation centres. You will gain the skills to deliver a sport and recreation service to clients in a recreation facility, learn about event management and how to deal with conflict and have the ability to put these skills into practice through on the job practice.
