Proficiencies are carried out annually to ensure all of your rescue skills are current. These proficiencies usually involve a multiple choice exam, demonstration of resuscitation techniques, timed run-swim-run, board rescue and tube rescue.
If you gain other awards such as your Advanced Resuscitation Certificate (ARC) and/or Defib, you are required to complete an annual proficiency for this award as well.
Members must complete a proficiency test every season prior to the 31st December. If you gain your Bronze Medallion or Surf Rescue Certificate after the 30th June, you are NOT required to do a proficiency test that calendar year.
Our club will arrange proficiencies at the start of each season, typically conducting three sessions a few weeks apart.
. It is important to RSVP so we can make sure we meet all water safety requirements and are able to provide enough trainers and assessors to get through the proficiency as quick as possible.
For support documentation to help with proficiency please see our proficiency downloads and also Surf Life Saving QLD's website.
