Pain Management Course

In line with new SLS policy North Palm Beach SLSC are required to provide TWO pain management award holders on each patrol.

The first training for this new award will take place at the conclusion of ARTC proficiencies on Sunday, 18 September 2011.  As ARTC is a prerequisite for undertaking this course it would be great if ALL members taking part in proficiency spend a little longer and get trained in Pain Management.  Thanks.


First Aid Course

All patrolling members who are not holding a current Senior First Aid Certificate are required to attend the next course.  This course is scheduled for Sunday, 16th October 2011 commencing at 9:00am.  Workbook must be completed prior to commencement of course – please contact Club regarding on-line or hardcopy workbook.
