    Registration. Everyone is invited and welcome to register as an AAI Adventurer. There are many benefits including discounts to the services and products of various AAI Professionals, AAI Providers and AAI Partners and access to the website for information and networking. Adventurers receive their annual plastic wallet sized photo ID card with their unique AAI registration number.

    Awards. These are assessed by an AAI Leader at the same level or above in the same activity discipline. They are formatted in modules and must be signed and dated in the candidates AAI Checklist whenever they are assessed as competent at that skill and level. When all the modules are signed off by the final assessor, a quality A5 certificate is issued by Head Office bearing the name and date of the award and the name and AAI number of the final assessor.

    You may pass all modules in one go, however, if you take longer, the final AAI Assessor will require evidence of continuing competence if more than twelve months has elapsed since the first modules assessment. The Leader will arrange for your fee to be forwarded and advise AAI Head Office who will update the AAI database of the name; award gained and date for that candidate. Some modules are generic, once you have passed them they cover you for all awards at that level.

    Adventurer Checklist pages are in pdf form and can be downloaded from the website for inserting in your binder, there are guidance notes as well. They are discipline and level specific, in A4 format identifying the holder and detailing the skills gained with some information on theory and technique in each module. A log or diary of significant outdoor activity should also be kept up to date in the AAI Adventurers Portfolio. 

    Your awards last for life, as long as your AAI registration remains in date and you complete the declaration of continuing competence and fitness with a brief reference statement from someone who knows you in the outdoors.

    AAI Registration is not required by Outdoor Education Certificate holders. If you hold Professional awards you must register as an AAI Professional.
