(formerly known as Proficiency)
All Bronze Medallion, SRC and Nippers Water Safety award holders must complete an annual Skills Maintenance course. This is a skills refresher, not a test and covers all requirements set out by SLSA.
Members must complete their online theory and attend a session before 31 December or you will be unable to patrol, train or compete.
Requirements before attending Skills Maintenance
Before attending your in-person Skills Maintenance session, members must:
- Be a financial member for the 2022/23 season
- Have an SLSA Members Account
- Book into the Skills Maintenance session you wish to attend through your SLSA Members Account.
- Complete the theory component online through your SLSA Members Account. Follow these steps to access your online course.
Tip: Be sure to watch the Introductory Video – it provides clues to answer the theory!
- Members 18 and over must hold a current Blue Card (working with children check).
Members are unable to participate in a Skills Maintenance session if Online Theory has not been completed.
If you need assistance with any of the above, please contact the office during business hours.
