*** UPDATE***

The theory component required for Skills Maintenance is now available online through the SLS Members Area at . The online component should only take approximately 15minutes to complete, you are encourged to complete this prior to completing the beach component.  A step by step guide can be found here  .



Yes, Members selected by the Lifesaving Committee will be authorised as a Skills Maintenance Delegate and be able to run an SRC or BM skills maintenance session on patrol for members.
The decision to run a session will be at the discretion of the Patrol Captain and will only be authorised if conditions permit. These are probably easier to do early in the season before the beach gets too busy, so don’t wait until December and miss out.
No higher awards will be able to be assessed on patrol.
If a member remains non-proficient in any award for a period of 3 continuous years or more, then they are required to go through SLSNSW’s in-depth proficiency process. You must contact the Skills Maintenance Officer if this is applicable and an individual session time will be arranged.

Patrol Swaps

Active members are reminded of their commitment to their patrol. Failing to turn up can not only cause the patrol to be left short but consistent absence can lead to suspension of your membership.

In the past, finding a sub for your patrol committment involved personal contacts or public posts on Facebook. This is no longer required.

Surf Life Saving now has a system through the online portal (the one you renewed your membership with) that shows your patrol roster and provides the ability to search or accept a patrol sub.  

The attached the guide outlines how to request or accept a patrol substitute.
