During the COVID Pandemic, to enable continuity of award status in circumstance where face to face meetings had to stop, we exceptionally introduced a self-declaration system for the renewal of awards, mostly used as a vocational/SAR proficiency. These awards are:
SLSGB First Responder
SLSGB Surf Coach and Rescue
The established cornerstone for our award validity governance has been proper face to face testing of competencies.
As face to face meetings are now permitted and can be conducted safely, with immediate effect we are ceasing the award renewal self-declaration process. Club Proficiency testing will be re-established in time for the 2022 Season.
If for valid reasons or immediate commitments you need an urgent award renewal, please send an e mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the urgent reasons for renewal and this will be considered on a case by case basis.
