The changes implemented in 2015/2016 season have been successful and continue into the 2017/18 year. Last season SLSA has conducted a review of the process and has now added an online component.   Members are asked to log on to the SLSA Members Portal, access the Lifesaving Online Courses and complete the Skills Maintenance theory tasks relevant to your awards.  Once complete a certificate can be printed from the Personal Learning Plan menu and presented to club Assessors at the time of the practical demonstration.  Please note that this does not replace the need to attend the club and demonstrate knowledge of the award.

A limited number of hard copy theory papers will be available during the Skills Maintenance programme for those that do not have access to the online tasks but to save time on the day it is preferable to do the online version.


Please see  the Elearning Link of how to access the e-Learning area of the Members Portal.
