Advanced Resus
We currently have 2 people registered. This is a course to enable you to provide a higher level of oxygen using OP airway, oxy bag as well as suction. Do you have Senior First Aid or Bronze Medallion?? If so let us know and we will get a course organised once we have 8 people. Dylan or Kylie have agreed to help run this course.

IRB Crew
Are you interested but not sure?? Watch this space for a Come and Try Hour at a time that Neil is on Patrol.

IRB Driver
Please note that you must be a Crew and have undertaken a good level of patrol hours covering Semaphore and more advanced waters and have a boat license which you must log with surf via the online portal. Once this is done register your interest.

Congratulations to Skeeters Patrol for getting proficient.

Semaphore Training Team would like to thank you all for coming down & completing your proficiencies. 32 completed rescues & swim & 16 did their dry work. Extra call out to Michael for such a great job and to those that supported him deal with the numbers.

Final proficiency date: Saturday 17 December
Dry proficiency will start at 10:30am on the grass at front door of the club.
Need to complete Full proficiency or Dry Proficency 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)
“Proficiencies link to complete before your proficiencies patrol:, login, then “lifesaving online”, then “courses”, then “go to learning online”, click a few times, then see the section marked “SKILLS MAINTENANCE”. SRC do “resus”, Bronze do “resus” and “radio”.”
The biggest hassle is getting the login userid and password sorted if you don’t have access to the email/mobile phone connected to your SLS record. Please use the helpline to sort this

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 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.
