Volunteer training is an integral component of the lifesaving movement. It is where water safety and lifesaving skills are learnt, developed and refreshed. The delivery of safe, effective and quality training is the sole objective of the Volunteer Training Department and members of the State Committee of Training and Assessment.
The changeover of staff responsible for Volunteer Training has presented the opportunity for a review of the current systems, structures and processes. The scope of the review is intended to cover all aspects of volunteer member training, with a focus on the identification and prioritisation of items which expose LSV to risk or have the potential to improve the training experience for the highest number of stakeholders.
The review will prioritise key items which have the potential to:
– Improve the skills and knowledge of volunteer lifesavers
– Improve the resources available to volunteers
– Reduce the administrative burden associated with volunteer training
– Improve the analysis, review, planning and delivery of volunteer training activities
– Increase LSV’s quality standards as an RTO
