IMPORTANT NOTICE – Renewal of SLSGB Awards by Self Declaration CPD to Stop

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:

Beach Lifeguard

Surf Lifeguard

SLSGB First Responder

SLSGB Surf Coach and Rescue

IRB Award 

RWC Award

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  stating the urgent reasons for renewal and this will be considered on a case by case basis.
