SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation

Due to updates to elective units from sport-specific activities there are a few changes to this qualification. The Units 3 and 4 sequence of SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation has changed with the removal of two deleted units of competency (UoCs) and the addition of one new UoC.  Students will also need to complete an additional elective UoC if they wish to be awarded the qualification. Schools are advised to check with their RTO.
