Jan Juc SLSC offer many opportunities for development within surf lifesaving.
Volunteer Training Courses
Club Members have the opportunity to achieve a selection of awards and competencies through the volunteer training system. These are delivered by our club volunteer Trainers, Assessors and Facilitators and are categorised as follows:
Jan Juc SLSC partner with Life Saving Victoria (LSV), which is a registered training organisation (RTO 21799) regulated by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), to deliver vocational education and training services. We are recognised as a provider of quality-assured and nationally accredited qualifications.
Our Trainers, Assessors and Facilitators are a dedicated and committed group of volunteer members who make a huge contribution to lifesaving. These individuals go above and beyond to ensure LSV’s volunteer members have the knowledge, skills and rescue capabilities to provide safe beach environments for Victorian communities and visitors.
Jan Juc SLSC offers a range of course delivery options to ensure flexible training delivery. Whilst we have a choice of delivery mode for select courses, the minimum hours for face-to-face training must be met. Some courses also have prerequisites (including other courses to be completed) fitness or age requirements.
We welcome members to develop their skills to contribute to patrolling, nipper water safety, event water safety and delivery of courses.
