Proficiency Update

All Club members who hold Surf Life Saving Australia awards must undergo annual skills maintenance (all known as proficiency)

These 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

Members who are not proficient as at 31 December are not permitted to patrol, or compete in any SLSA competition, until they have obtained the required proficiency.A member’s proficiency is valid until the 31 December each year
