Surf Life Saving Tasmania (SLST) is Tasmania’s peak Water safety and Lifesaving organisation. Our movement is a part of the history, fabric and future of this country. It represents the lifestyle, values and beliefs of the Australian culture. It protects life, it saves life, it promotes life. We create a safe environment in and around our waterways, through patrols on, in and around aquatic environments and through community education and training programs.

We achieve this by working with our members, communities, educational institutions, governments, and other organisations in the provision of best practice education, training, surveillance and rescue and risk management services. Each year to grow our capacity to be able to reach the community and meet their diverse needs, SLST recruits Community Lifeguards and Education Instructors.


SLST is seeking trainers for our commercial courses. Interested? Check out the Trainer Position Description.
