PROFICIENT FOR ALL AWARDS UNTIL DECEMBER 2017
Final 2 Proficiency dates at Semaphore
ARTC, ATV Operator, Bronze & SRC:
Saturday 3 December 2016
Saturday 17 December 2016
Congratulations Semaphore we have over 60 of our Patrol members proficient to date. The Wickman patrol complete theirs last week with many undertaking the swim in the windy conditions as well as a rescue on the day, they will do anything to get out of my first aid questions.
There have been 7 opportunities to date and there are over 60 people dryly proficient waiting for the nicer weather for their waterwork as this has not been a good season so far but this is your final chance.
Full proficiency – arrive no later than 13:30 to ensure that you are through by 14:30 as takes time to see you complete assessment & don’t want o miss the rescues & swim.
Swims and Rescues – Arrive at the beach ready to get in the water no later than 14:30 as it takes time to get all rescues done & don’t want to miss the Swim at 15:00.
Michael Kenny or Jennie Charlton will be in their blue assessor top to make it easier to spot & will be close to the nipper areas to enable watercover and patrol to complete all their work and proficiencies.

If due to work/commitments this is impossible for you to make these dates then please let Jennie Charlton know by end of this week (Sunday 4 December) on email@example.com as will need to organise to link you in with another club to complete proficiencies.
IRB Crew/Driver – No Dates at Semaphore
If unable to attend on the 2 options provided this year and still wish to be proficient please let Jennie Charlton know by end of this week (Sunday 4 December) on firstname.lastname@example.org as will need to organise to link you in with another club to complete proficiencies. We are dependent on other clubs for this assessment and so only option now is linking in with other clubs’ proficiencies so please do not approach Neil or Michael as they can only train this area not assess proficiency or assessment at this stage.
Waiting List for Courses
