Skills maintenance online testing

You must complete the online skills maintenance tests – remember you only need to complete what you are awarded in. So, everyone needs to complete the resuscitation and radio, but only do the power craft if you have your crew or drivers’ award.

This is done through your members’ area account (formerly known as Members Portal). If you do not have an account set up yet, please do this, as that is the main form of contact and PLEASE make sure it is up to date with your details.

Proficiency testing dates

Proficiencies for the 2017/18 surf season will be run on Saturdays starting from October 14 and running through until the Christmas break up.

The times are 10am and 11:30am.
