TRAINING & EDUCATION
Successful lifesaving is accomplished through volunteer lifesavers having specific, relevant and up to date training and education. Lifesavers apply their knowledge and skills to provide the beach going public with a service of prevention, promotion and protection.
The training and education area provides introductory, standard and higher level training in the use of lifesaving equipment and advanced emergency care resources that enhances the lifesavers ability to provide support to the community, while maintaining and developing their own skills.
The trainers and assessors are lifesavers who have identified the importance of a well trained organisation and further dedicate their time, to provide ongoing access to training and education of new and existing members.
Many of the courses delivered are nationally accredited which provides opportunities for the knowledge and skills gained through lifesaving to be used for gaining or maintaining employment outside of the lifesaving movement.
