Training and Skills Maintenance

Maintaining your life saving skills is essential: This page will show details to maintain and expand that knowledge

Each year most Lifesaving Victoria awards are required to be renewed and updated.

Members are asked to show their proficiency in each award by attending a skills maintenance (SM) session. This is a great opportunity to refresh your skills and knowledge prior to the season commencement and also to learn new knowledge and techniques. This process usually involves a series of theory questions and a practical demonstration.
