To maintain your SLSA awards, all active and long service members must complete a Skills Maintenance Check (SMC) prior to the 31st of December as per SLSA Policy and NCSLSC by-laws.

SMC Prerequisites:

  • Financial member of the Surf Life Saving Club
  • Award must be current or have not expired for more than 3 years*
    *any members that had not undertaken an SMC for 3 years or more would be required to complete the SMC online component and then undertake a skills assessment to determine what, if any, areas the member needed to undergo further training in to be assessed as competent. Please contact requal@ncslsc.com for details.

Please be aware that numbers may be capped for each timeslot. This is to provide a safe environment and to avoid members sitting around for long periods waiting for their turn.

Please be advised of the following conditions, as per last season:

  • If you do not attend your enrolled SMC you will be charged up to a $50 administration fee.
  • Once a session reaches its ticket cap, you will not be permitted to register for that session – you must choose another timeslot.
  • You may not withdraw from a registered SMC less than 48 hours before the course as we have confirmed our trainers for this session.

Note that after the 31st of December:

  • We are not running any SMC dates other than those listed on the calendar above.
    If you DO NOT attend a SMC before the 31st of December then your membership at North Cott SLSC may be suspended.
  • Late SMCs after the 31st of December will incur up to a $50 penalty fee.

If you have any issues registering please email requal@ncslsc.com or contact the office for assistance.
