The numbers are in and all signs point to another BIG season of training and assessing at Woolamai Beach SLSC so far. The Training and Assessing Team has delivered over 450 qualifications thus far.

Some of the highlights include: 77 Bronze Medallions, 62 First Aid Certificates, 46 Resuscitation Certificates, 45 Basic Life Support Certificates, 31 Advanced Resuscitation Techniques Certificates, 28 Inflatable Rescue Boat Crew Certificates and 23 Surf Rescue Certificates.

I would like to note that the 46 Resuscitation Certificates and 45 Basic Life Support Certificates we delivered as part of an initiative, spearheaded by Alex Tzimokas, where 46 Dark Green Cap (12 Year Old) Nippers were taught Resuscitation and Basic Life Support to help bridge the gap between the Nippers program and the Surf Rescue Certificate Course, as well as teach this 12 Year Old important life saving skills.

I would like to take this chance to thank all the Trainers and Assessors who have helped deliver these qualifications, the hard work these Trainers and Assessors put in should not go unnoticed. Please refer to the below table for the full break down of the 450 qualifications.
