In-Depth Proficiencies

If a member is non-proficient in any award for any period of time, then they are required to complete skills maintenance elements identified through a training gap analysis. This must be conducted to determine what differences occur between the award as it currently stands and what skill and knowledge the award consisted of at the time the member was last proficient. If the gap analysis determines there is a gap in skill and/or knowledge, the candidate may be required to undertake training and assessment in the gap(s) identified. For example, a member may have obtained their Bronze Medallion when use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) was not taught in the Bronze Medallion, therefore the member would have to be trained and assessed in this skill and knowledge.
