Skills Maintenance (Requal)

To remain eligible to patrol and compete, members must requalify their awards yearly, at the start of the season. All expire on 31 December, eg. requals done in late 2017 for 2017/18 season will expire end December 2018. 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. See Anna's 'Foolproof tips to be ready for requal' below!

Anna's 'Foolproof tips to be ready for requal'

Go to http://mt.lsv-from-anywhere.com.au/login. Create an account if you haven't already got one. Go to Skills Maintenance. Find SM-Bronze Medallion (then do the same for other awards you hold). Launch. It will allow you to go through your theory test, 35 questions (Note you don't have to get 100%). At the end, click on Complete, then return to Skills Management. The Bronze Medallion bit should now have a blue button, 'Book Practical'. Click on OG 19 Nov (or another location/date), then 'Book'.

Make sure you then go to My Results, scroll to Skills Maintenance Theory Certificates, 'Download Certificate'. You need to print this (or have it on a device to show us) and bring it along on requal day.

You must also be a financial member by requal day. Note, this means you have renewed via members portal, paid fees, have WWCC up to date (with OGSLSC listed on card!), and no outstanding club debt from 2016/17 season.
