Online Learning Portal

This season Surf Life Saving New Zealand (SLSNZ) launched its new Online Learning Portal. This platform enables all members of SLSNZ to log in and complete theory-based training and assessments.

Online training is now available to all members, volunteers and staff, providing a variety of learning delivery options in a streamlined and easy to use manner. Members should find the portal intuitive and easy to use however support from SLSNZ staff is always available to facilitate its smooth introduction.

We are excited to be delivering such a cutting edge educational tool that will, in time, encompass all training courses and assessments that make up the SLSNZ training system. The Online Learning Portal will launch with this season’s Surf Lifeguard Refresher Course (both the course material and the test), with more courses being added as time goes on.
