Explanatory notes
1 Definition

Current industry practice refers to practices promoted through industry national forums, newsletters, and assessments which are generally accepted by experienced practitioners as safe, relevant, and consistent with sustainable practices. These will be consistent with any applicable legislation, standards, codes, requirements or manufacturer’s recommendations.
2 For assessment purposes:

The candidate must be assessed as a member of a group under the direct supervision of an experienced leader. The leader will hold responsibility for the development of all plans relevant to the multi-night tramps including selection of routes and is responsible for all risk-based decision making for the group.


The candidate’s behaviour must demonstrate environmental care and consideration of other users of the area, consistent with the leave no trace principles and current industry practice. This includes, where applicable, seeking consents from land managers and local hapū or iwi.
Multi-night tramping trips must include at least ten days of tramping. At least two of these trips must be for two-nights or more.
Assessment against this unit standard is to occur on track and is intended to be in an area where, or season when, snow and ice is not normally encountered.
