Skills Maintenance (Requal)
Skills Maintenance is intended to ensure that all patrolling lifesavers remain proficient in their skills and display full knowledge and understanding of the patrol award criteria for which they are being assessed. The Skills Maintenance assists to :
Ensure ongoing competency of members in their area of training and activity
Maintain the standards of knowledge and expertise of lifesavers
Satisfy legal and statutory requirements
Reinforce and maintain our service commitment to the beach going public
All members who wish to actively take part in patrol duties, Water Safety for the nipper Program or compete in competitions at a State or National level must undertake annual Skills Maintenance activities to maintain proficiency.
Skills Maintenance includes practical assessments and, for some awards, an online theory component (see below).
Complete your online theory via your LSV Training from Anywhere Portal prior to attending a practical session. There will be no opportunity to do this on the day.
DATES - 2020 Skills Maintenance are to be advised.

On the day Members must bring:
A copy of your Membership Confirmation - this illustrates that you have met all membership requirements (renewed, financial and current WWCC).
IRB Drivers must bring their current Marine Licence.
A copy of your online theory certificate - you must have completed this prior.
Online Theory is completed via LSV Member Training From Anywhere.
If you intend on completing your Skills Maintenance practical session at another Club, please take a copy of your signed proficiency card before handing it in and email the copy to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know which Club you attended.
How do I access LSV Member Training from Anywhere?
You can access LSV Member Training from Anywhere by clicking here and enter relevant login details specific to this platform, or alternatively select forgot password.

Alternatively, if you have previously logged into LSV Member Training from Anywhere you can now access it via your Members Portal. To access via your Members Portal you will need to have your own Members Portal account. If you are starting to gain awards, it is recommended that you create your own Members Portal account. This way you can keep track of your own awards and patrol hours. You can remain part of the Family Group, but it allows you access to your individual membership details.
Once online questions have successfully been completed, print out or take a copy of the certificate and bring it along to the practical session.
