Skills Maintenance

requalDates for the diary

Here they are – with a new “look”. It has been decided to split the requal­i­fi­ca­tion pro­gram between Dry and Wet skills – due to the large num­bers we have. It will be impor­tant to reg­is­ter for your pre­ferred ses­sion – so we can make sure we have suf­fi­cient Asses­sors (and Train­ers) to ensure an effi­cient ses­sion. There is also a mix of week­day evenings (Dry ses­sions) and week­ends (Wet ses­sions).

Mem­bers who are unable to attend within the dates listed due to work or travel com­mit­ments are requested to advise the Edu­ca­tion team with­out delay – so alter­na­tive arrange­ments can be worked out.

Skills Main­te­nance areas to be cov­ered at the ses­sions listed below will be Bronze Medal­lion, Surf Res­cue Cer­tifi­cate and Advanced Resus­ci­ta­tion Tech­niques. Each ses­sion will com­mence with an overview of changes, with an oppor­tu­nity to prac­tice, before par­tic­i­pat­ing in a series of sce­nar­ios – sim­i­lar to last year.

  • DRY: Mon­day 9 Octo­ber, 6pm to 9pm
  • WET: Sun­day 15 Octo­ber, 1pm to 4pm
  • DRY: Wednes­day 18 Octo­ber, 6pm to 9pm
  • WET: Sat­ur­day 21 Octo­ber, 1pm to 4pm
  • DRY: Wednes­day 25 Octo­ber, 6pm to 9pm
  • WET: Sat­ur­day 4 Novem­ber, 8am to 12pm

IRB Skills Main­te­nance will be pro­vided as a sep­a­rate pro­gram, due to the increased require­ment to demon­strate nego­ti­at­ing surf five times.

  • Sun­day 8 Octo­ber, 1pm to 4pm
  • Sat­ur­day 14 Octo­ber, 8am to 11am
  • Sun­day 5 Novem­ber, 1pm to 4pm

The plan has been designed to avoid the busy period of late Novem­ber and Decem­ber – as mem­bers are busy fin­ish­ing their work/school year, and also get­ting ready for the Christ­mas sea­son.
