Aussies – Certificate II compliance

Call­ing all Bronze Medal­lion mem­bers intend­ing to com­pete at any Aus­tralian Surf Life Sav­ing Cham­pi­onships event…

Check whether your per­sonal record shows you have attained the Cer­tifi­cate II in Pub­lic Safety (Aquatic Res­cue). This was included in the Bronze Medal­lion until around five years ago, so mem­bers hold­ing this award do not need to take any fur­ther action (pro­vided they are pro­fi­cient for this sea­son).

A Work­shop was be held at the club on Sun­day 18 March, at 3pm, for Bronze Medal­lion (BM) qual­i­fied mem­bers need­ing their Cer­tifi­cate II. Mem­bers requir­ing recog­ni­tion of prior learn­ing (RPL) will need to attend and com­plete the doc­u­men­ta­tion. It is antic­i­pated this ses­sion would not take longer than two (2) hours – this will depend on num­bers attend­ing.


Patrol Cap­tains will be invited to attend, as there is a sec­tion that requires com­ple­tion by the member’s Patrol Cap­tain.

Cer­tifi­cate IV TAE (SLSA Asses­sors) will also be in atten­dance so they can assist with com­ple­tion of the paper­work.

It is impor­tant that this RPL process is com­pleted as planned – to allow SLSWA time to process the paper­work and issue the required cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Each per­son needs to bring along:

  • A print­out of your Awards List from the Sur­f­Guard data­base – via your Mem­ber Por­tal account
  • A print­out of your patrols – rec­om­mend you do this for the cur­rent sea­son, as well as last sea­son – via your Mem­ber Por­tal account

Addi­tional evi­dence required includes:

  • Evi­dence of com­plet­ing a Gear and Equip­ment check; this can be sim­u­lated at the Work­shop, pro­vided your Patrol Cap­tain can sign off on it (you could copy the whole Patrol Log for your last patrol)
  • Evi­dence of com­plet­ing an Inci­dent Report form – this will be sim­u­lated in the Work­shop for rea­sons of con­fi­den­tial­ity (a form will be pro­vided).

Please con­tact the Edu­ca­tion Man­ager if you have any queries (0438 759 923, or courses email), oth­er­wise we shall see you at the Work­shop.
