RLSS Bronze Medallion Update

Some changes for trainers !
With immediate effect there are some significant and positive changes to the bronze process !
> Trainer led assessment of the Bronze Medallion and Life Support Awards
> Renewal assessment option for Bronze Medallion candidates

These are intended to simplify the process for trainers and will be of great assistance to clubs where they have to pay charges to assessors (yes seriously that happens) there is also reduced rates for Bronze medallion renewals

& Trainers if you want personalised BM forms so you dont have to handwrite details just ask - no problem !

Some documents outlining the changes attached - make sure you read them before implementing !

St Paul's Re-opens

St Paul's College today confirmed that the former pool will reopen in July 2009.

Lifeguards confirmed that they have booked two full days in July following the opening and will be returning twice weekly for the entire summer season.

Speaking in Dublin trainers noted the return to our beginnings and told local journalists that this will be a significant addition to the Clontarf area.

Members expressed delight with the news and looked forward to many beach lifeguard courses at the venue this summer
