Skills maintenance

Skills maintenance is an important part of a lifesavers training. Each year lifesavers are required to complete a theory and practical component, testing their knowledge and skills to ensure they continue to meet the standards set out in the awards they hold and that they are up to date with the latest updates that have occurred in the past 12months.

At the commencement of the new season members will automatically be allocated the current skills Maintenace course – it will appear in the ‘My Training’ area of the eLearning platform. The CTO will notify members when this is live and ready to be completed.

Once the theory component has been completed members will be able to attend a practical component – The CTO will notify members of dates and times for these practical components.

Members can continue to access the theory component throughout the season to refresh their knowledge as required.

To access the online theory components, follow these instructions:

  1. Login to your Members Area
  2. Click “eLearning” on the top menu
  3. Click “Login to eLearning now

Browse available courses in the ‘Training Library’ section. Click ‘Enrol’ to access the course.

To access courses that you have been automatically assigned or have enrolled in following the instructions above, including your annual skills maintenance update, select ‘My Training’ from the menu which will be located on the left of your screen.

Courses are broken into modules and these can be completed at your own pace. To return to a course currently in progress select ‘My Training’ and select the course you wish to continue with.
