The Generic Adventure Site Guide program (GASG) may be used to qualify in any adventure based activity, but these specific additional qualifications can be used for those who would like a specific technical certificate which is registered with the SA Qualifications Authority.
People in particular who do not guide professionally, but who would like proof of competence could use these to fill this need.
