General Member’s Registration Instructions
2018/19 registrations are open
The “signup” process is a considerable burden on both the club and our members, we apologise and ask that you are thorough and methodical when applying. The process will take you to several offsite websites and require separate log in details, we hope this page and the questionnaire make it a little easier to ensure you fulfill ALL the steps!
We have a lot of plans for this year and are glad you choose to join us!
1. Obtain your Working With Children Check
All members over 18 MUST hold a WWCC, that means if you turn 18 this season you should also apply for your WWCC now! Many people already hold a WWCC with another organisation. If this is the case you must update your WWCC to include both Life Saving Victoria and Warrnambool SLSC.
If you do not hold a WWCC you must apply for one.
Details on this simple process are explained here: Warrnambool SLSC WWCC
2. Complete Skills Maintenance Requirements
Logging into your account on Member Training from anywhere will allow you to book into one of our Skills Maintenance sessions. It will also show you the dates of neighboring sessions. Book yourself in and complete the theory components online before attending!
Remember: The log in details are different to your SLSA Member’s Portal account, as this is a LSV only website especially for training and Skills Maintenance
3. SLSA Registration
You know the drill by now…you are required to register separately with Surf Life Saving Australia and renew that registration each year. This can be done individually or by creating a family on the SLSA Member’s Portal. Details are provided via the following link but also the SLSA website has good information on how to proceed.
You will see a “Make a Payment” link during this process, You can use this but please fill in the forms on our own website first. Direct Credit or credit card payment (either via this SLSA website or via PayPal) is accepted from our website. The link is further down this page!
After you’ve completed the questionnaire on this website and you know how much you need to pay you CAN pay via this SLSA step, but please identify the payment thoroughly.
