Instructors Training Course

The Instructors Training course is one of the requirements for candidates wishing to gain their Surf Lifeguard and/or IRB instructors' award and will be an interactive day course involving both theory and practical elements.



Instructors and Examiners Train the Trainer Workshop

The Instructors and Examiners Train the Trainer Workshop will be held over two days and will encompass the topics covered in the traditional Instructors Training Course. As well as the traditional components of the Instructors Training Course, extra components will be covered focussing on the principles of instruction, not just the content of the awards, to help better prepare instructors and examiners.
