Skills Maintenance (Requal)

To remain eligible to patrol and compete, members must requalify their awards yearly, at the start of the season. SLSA gives a grace period of four years in which a lapsed award can be requalified. After this period, the award must be completed from scratch.

Online theory completion is required for SRC, Bronze Medallion, ARTC GOLD MEDALLION, IRBC, IRBD & ROC candidates.

Please make sure that you complete your online theory component and BOOK IN ONLINE for the practical component.

Go to Life Saving Victoria Skills Maintenance from Anywhere to do your theory online and book in to do your requal.

Geelong Area

2017/18 Requal dates for the Geelong Area are yet to be confirmed.

All listed sessions will requal Bronze Medallion. Please note that other awards may not be offered for a given time and/or venue. For example, if you need to update IRB Crew, phone the club in question and make sure they will requal IRB Crew on that day.


On the day you will need to:

  • Show proof of completion of online component
  • Have booked in online for EACH award you wish to requalify for
  • Bring Marine Boat Liscence (IRBD only)
