How do I gain a Statement of Attainment?

– The AC Assessor must also hold a cert IV TAE in Training and Assessment

– SOA must be requested at the same time as the Australian Canoeing award

– Scouts Australia RPL forms must be completed and return to AC with the AC assessment record.

 

Please note: The RPL forms are available on the Australian Canoeing website http://canoe.org.au/education-safety/australian-canoeing-award-scheme-acas/

or from an AC assessor holding a TAE in Training and Assessment, not all Australian Canoeing qualified assessors hold a TAE are can therefore not request a Statement of Attainment

What units are issued in the Statement of Attainment?

You can view the units under the ACAS section of the Australian Canoeing website at:

What is a Statement of Attainment?

A Statement of Attainment is a list of units of competency. These units are part of the Outdoor Recreation training package and can be used as credit towards a Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation.

Why do I want a Statement of Attainment?

A small number of employers may ask for a Statement of Attainment. However, an ACAS award is a peak body award that shows your currency in canoeing/kayaking and should be sufficient for most employers.
