At the start of every season all patrolling members are required to attend a skills maintenance/proficiency session for each award they hold. For the Bronze Medallion, members are given the choice of set dates and are required to register in advance and attend ONE of these sessions. Dates are advertised in the calendar and the news section below.
Members who are not proficient as at December 31st are not permitted to patrol, or compete in any SLSA competition, until they have obtained the required proficiency.
If a member remains non-proficient in any award for a period of 3 continuous years or more, then they are required to either sit an in-depth proficiency, a full assessment, or be retrained in order to be considered proficient in the award.
