Online Learning

Surf Life Saving New Zealand is proud to provide our members with next generation learning at their fingertips.  Our online learning brings training into your home with flexibility, learning that is self-directed and convenient.  Take control of your own learning and free up more time to spend learning your practical skills at the beach.

We are offering the opportunity for your members to complete their Surf Lifeguard Award (SLA), Patrol Support (PS), IRB Drivers (IRBD) and Rescue Water Craft (RWC) theory refreshers online.  You can also complete your IRB Crewperson pre learning module, Surf Official Level 1 pre learning and more.  Each year we have been working hard to fix system issues and come up with a number of systems and process changes that we hope will make the experience smoother and more user-friendly for everyone.

While we are gradually migrating much of our member education experiences into an online learning environment, we are still being thorough in our testing and giving careful consideration to what we roll out, and when.
