Skills maintenance (proficiency)
2023/2024 Season

Skills maintenance sessions are now finished for the 2023/24 season. Thanks to all members who attended and to our trainers, assessors and other helpers who gave up their time to run these sessions.

Please contact the office if you have any questions or would like to apply for a late proficiency in the new year.

Annual skills maintenance checks are necessary to:

  • Ensure ongoing competency of members in their area of training and activities.

  • Maintain the standards of knowledge and expertise of surf life savers.

  • Satisfy legal and statutory requirements.

  • Reinforce and maintain our service commitment to the bathing and beach going community.

If you would like to complete skills maintenance:

  • You will need to be financial prior to attending skills maintenance (renew via members area)

  • Please ensure your Blue Card is current (if 18 years or older).

  • If relevant, please check your licences (marine, car, etc.) are current and up to date in your members area.

  • Skipped a year? No worries! If you weren't proficient last season, please organise a timed pool swim relevant to your award on this form. ​
