Training at Gunnamatta




Each year, we as patrollers are required to requalify (or ‘requal’) our skills that we have gathered over the years. That is, you must show that the skills you were taught on Bronze camp or other courses like First Aid for example, are up to scratch for the following season. This may involve demonstrating skills(e.g CPR or basic fitness) depending on the awards you hold, to the assessor’s. 

The assessor’s will give you tips and tricks to improve your skills and sign you off as requalified for your skills. This is not a test set for you to fail, the assessor’s are there to advise and help you improve your skills so that you can be deemed competent for the following season. 

For most awards, skills maintenance involves an online theory part (done on Member Training From Anywhere) and a practical part (done at GunnamattaSLSC at one of our Skills Maintenance Sessions). You will need to have fully completed your online theory before attending the practical Skills Maintenance Sessions.
