Gisborne/Tairawhiti - IRB Driver Exam #2
Tel: 027 901 7517
We are monitoring swell conditions and looking for an appropriate surf state to conduct the practical examination. We ask candidates to be adaptable as the venue, time, and date may change. If the conditions are not suitable on Sunday the 11th we will continue to run the theory test and engine reinstatement components. We will look to run the remaining exam segments in the following two weeks depending on swell.
The Senior Lifeguard Award - IRB Driver (SLA-IRBD) is designed to create competent IRB drivers. The qualification has a number of theoretical and practical components such driving in the surf, solo driving and maritime regulations to prepare Surf Lifeguards for IRB use. It is compulsory for members to have the SLA-IRBD to drive an IRB. The SLA-IRBD gives Surf Lifeguards the knowledge and skill required to respond in rescue situations utilising an IRB. The SLA-IRBD is a pre requisite for the National Lifeguard School.
