Skills Maintenance 

What is Skills Maintenance?

Surf lifesaving clubs are responsible for ensuring that their members maintain their skills to the minimum standard set by Surf Life Saving Australia. The guiding principle for skills maintenance is that surf lifesaving clubs must be able to meet their service level agreements with confidence in the lifesaving skills and abilities of their active patrolling members. 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 lifesavers

• satisfy legal and statutory requirements

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

Skills Maintenance formally known as proficiency is completed annually and should be done prior to the 31st of December each year to ensure that the member/s are competent.
