Advanced Lifesaving Program Announcement

Friday 18 February 2022

The Advanced Lifesaving Program aims to give Surf Life Saving Tasmania members the opportunity to further their lifesaving skills through training in Advanced First Aid (HLTAID014) and Silver Medallion Aquatic Rescue (SMAR). The live-in program will be run over three days utilising scenario-based training. The program is targeted at members who have experience as lifesavers and leaders on the beach and are now looking to expand their skillset.

March 2022 will be run as a pilot with a review process to ensure the program continues to be improved into the future and become apart of SLST's annual lifesaving development calendar. The Advanced Lifesaving Program aims to complement existing programs such as the Lifesaving Development Camp and provide more opportunities to the members of SLST.
