Training & Education

Successful lifesaving is accomplished through volunteer lifesavers having specific, relevant and up to date training and education. Lifesavers apply their knowledge and skills to provide the beach going public with a service of prevention, promotion and protection.

Our education courses are nationally recognised courses through Surf Life Saving Australia, providing opportunities for skills based development and are provided for patrolling members of our club, to help save lives and keep Maroochydore Beach safe.
