Skills Maintenance

Every year each member of our club must complete the SLSQ Proficiency requirements by the 31st December. This reinforces the skills of each award that our members have.

The annual Bronze Medallion/SRC Skills Maintenance includes:

  • Online theory
  • Dry theory assessment covering signals, radio protocols, first aid scenarios and resuscitation techniques
  • Beach skills assessment covering board rescue, tube rescue, beach carries, run-swim-run and any other water-based activities e.g. spinals and first aid scenarios

Most lifesaving awards will require you to complete an annual skills maintenance to assess skill level and ensure currency. Failure to successfully complete the skills maintenance requirements will result in your awards being deemed ‘not yet proficient’ and you will be unable to perform patrol duties until rectified.

The club will arrange skills maintenance dates at the start of the season and all dates will be advertised on the club notice board, club website and via Team App.

  • Pool Swim

    If you are proficient in your Bronze Medallion or SRC from last season you are NOT required to perform a recorded swim as part of your Skills Maintenance this season. If you are not currently proficient and you wish to do your timed pool swim without a Coolum Beach Surf Life Saving Club accredited assessor, please contact the club for a copy of the pool swim form.
