Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). This means that the majority of our courses are nationally recognised and as such must meet with national training requirements. One of these is for all qualified course trainees to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This number is your individual education number for life. It also gives you an online record of your VET training undertaken in Australia.
Don't have a USI
If you don't already have a USI you will need to apply for one online. This is extremely straight forward and will only take you 5 minutes; you just need one form of eligible identification. Find out more and apply here: https://www.usi.gov.au/students/get-a-usi
Already have a USI
If you already have a USI that's great. You will need it when you complete your ALAQ (Australian Lifesaving Academy Queensland) enrolment.
Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?
It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.
So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
