All candidates must complete all pre-work
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.
