ALBERT

The ALBERT program “Australian Life Boat Emergency Rescue Training“ is a branch run training program aimed at improving the skills of current IRB drivers and crew, as well as training new drivers and crew.  The program is about developing all the skills required to effectively operate an IRB in a constructive and cooperative environment.

Training Schedule for 2018/19

If you are interested in joining the 2018/19 program in any capacity, please contact IRB Captain, Brett Tetlow (irbcaptain@saltsurfclub.com.au) or Club Captain, Jeff Smith (captain@saltsurfclub.com.au) and they will help you get organised.

The FNC Branch wants to attract young members onto this pathway.  The majority of IRB teams across the States are under the age of 29 and consist of nearly 40% young women. The old days and old ways of IRB racing have been updated with professionally managed competitions and safe training protocols.

Bronze holders can first gain their IRB Crew Certificate, then progress towards IRB Driver Certificate.
