Proficiency testing is a vital part of maintaining our level of skill

Proficiency Requirements
Every patrolling lifesaver must complete their proficiency annually.

All patrol members and any competing long serving members are required to complete an annual proficiency test. These requirements are set out in the circulars issued by SLSA.

Proficiency dates are set out early in the season and it is recommended that you attend early. This avoids the last minute rush and the chance that work/illness/misadventure prevents you undertaking your proficiency later.

All competitors must be proficient by Dec 31 to be eligible to compete.
