Refreshing and pathways for lifeguards
Attaining your Lifeguard Award comes with the responsibility to refresh every season. This is a requirement set down by SLSNZ; a requirement that Maranui values as a tool to maintain standard and provide an opportunity to learn more about the importance of being a Surf Lifeguard.
Refreshing your Lifeguard Award requires that surf lifeguards be tested on their physical fitness, CPR, First Aid skills and knowledge of simple lifeguarding practises every year.
Pathways for Lifeguards.
Pathways for Lifeguards have been set by SLSNZ to help Lifeguards to further their Lifeguarding qualifications. These pathways are reinforced by Maranui through a progression from Nippers to Lifeguard level.
This progression helps Lifeguards to learn about two of the three Rescue equipment used to effect a rescue, the Rescue Tube and Rescue Board.
Pathways outlined here will show the progression for those that have come through our Nipper programme and those that are new to surf.
