Dry proficiency will start at start of patrol
Need to complete Full proficiency or Dry Proficiency only please arrive no later than 1:00pm
Need to complete Wet proficiency only please arrive no later than 2:00pm. Please note that the assessor must see you do the rescue & so we can not have more than 2 rescues taking place at same time so do not be offended if asked to wait/ redo ( if we have not observed you)
The swim will take place at 3pm.
Also option of ATV proficiency/assessment (with completed workbook) from 3pm.
Please ensure you have done online Skills Maintenance for the course that you have (ignore the ones you don’t)

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 email@example.com 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.
