Surf Lifesaving Australia have signficiantly changed the content of both the Bronze and SRC qualifications.  SLSWA are currently working through these changes.  These will then get rolled out to all clubs.  It's important we all have the same understanding of these key awards so, until we have received these updates and communicated them to all of our trainers and assessors, NO REQUALS are to be held.  Requals can usually be held anytime from 1st July each year.  The main requal period is not until November but some people do try to get this done early.  We will let you know as soon as possible what the changes are and when requals can start.  
We are excited to announce that, as restrictions lift, we hope to be able to start an IRB drivers course soon.  Tentative details below.  Please contact Jess in the office to sign up for the course (it will only go ahead if we get enough interest).
Practical Sessions: Saturday mornings 7 - 10am, starting 25th July and running for approximately 8 weeks (Starting after the school holidays)
Theory Session: Thursday evening 6 - 9pm 23rd July
Please let Jess know if you already have a Skippers ticket or not.
Prerequisites: Minimum of 16 years of age to commence training. Minimum of 17 years of age on the date of final assessment. Hold and be currently proficient in the SLSA awards: Bronze Medallion and IRB Crew Certificate.
Note: course duration depends on a number of factors including the weather and we reserve the right to change the course details, including adding Sunday sessions if required.

We are pleased to advise that the much anticipated, inaugural SOSLSC RWC Operator’s Course is to be conducted in 2020 and the Club is inviting expressions of interest from members.
The aim of this course is to provide participants with advanced skills and knowledge to effectively drive and manage a Rescue Water Craft (RWC) in lifesaving operations.

  • The Club is intending to conduct an RST course in the week prior to July school holidays, which commence on 4th July (only required of you don’t have an RST or don’t want to pay to get one independently);
