Patrol Roster

Salt Proficiency

  • First Date: 28th October 2018, and 16th December 2018

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. Refer to Appendix 1 for an overview of changes to the Bronze Medallion Award and refer to your SLS state/territory centre for other awards.

  • Exemptions can only be approved by the Management Committee, with all requests required in writing, putting in a request does not mean an exemption will be granted. Everyone is busy - not just you..
  • People missing more than 1 patrol without reasonable excuse may be required to address the Club Committee about continuing membership - so remember if you cant make patrol due to whatever then ring your Patrol Captain and let them know as well as the Vice¬†Captain - your courtesy will ensure you are not penalised but also shows respect to your fellow patrol members.
