The above is a substantial load for the Education Team. Please ensure you nominate ASAP for any Award listed as there is considerable course material to be sourced & issued  for each candidate.

Also, it is important that all candidates complete any pre-work requirements before course date.

The Club is actively promoting IRB & Advanced Resuscitation awards in particular, to ensure we address the compulsory Patrol requirements for this & future seasons. We endeavour to provide an active, well trained, volunteer lifesaving service on  City Beach with skills that may also be used on Anyone/Anywhere/Anytime to protect or save a life.

We also need members to consider joining the Education Team & progressing to gain SLSA Trainer /  Assessor / Facilitator qualifications to ensure our Club continues to produce sufficient lifesaver to meet our future needs.

We would like to thank and acknowledge the following local businesses for their ongoing support.
