Education, Training & Skills Maintenance
Woonona SLSC offers members a range of lifesaving awards. All SLSC training is nationally recognised training and can provide many invaluable life skills. Some qualifications and awards are required to perform certain roles within our club, and others are aimed at providing further development opportunities for our volunteers.
Costs to members are minimal (in most cases free) but once you have successfully completed the training in leu of payment a number of volunteer hours in the specified role is required.
