Skills Maintenance (AKA Proficiency)

A member’s proficiency is valid until the 31 December each year unless stated otherwise in Surf guard. Most awards – Bronze Medallion, SRC, ART (or ARTC), Spinal Management, IRB Crew, IRB Driver and Gold Medallion need an annual skills maintenance.

Only awards gained after 30 June, in a particular year are then proficient in that award until 31 December in the following season.

For Example:

  • I gained my bronze medallion on 24th April 2016

Therefore, you must complete a Skills Maintenance before 31st December 2016

  • I gained my Bronze Medallion on 12th December 2016

Therefore, you are proficient until 31st December 2017, you must do a skills maintenance in the 2017/18 season
