The Aquatic Duty Manager course has been released to support and upskill a strong, sustainable, and responsive aquatic industry.
The new online course offered by Royal Life Saving NSW | ACT | TAS provides new training and development for current and prospective Duty Managers.
Research published by Royal Life Saving in the National Aquatic Industry Workforce 2020 Report found:
• Most workers do 2 or fewer Professional Development (PD) activities a year
• Not all employee PD activities are funded by employers
• 2 in every 3 workers believe that the greatest change has been in safety, compliance, and legal requirements
These findings were important when Royal Life Saving considered the format and the learning outcomes of the Aquatic Duty Manager course.
“This course allows lifeguards an opportunity to fulfill the GSPO requirements, adding another PD course under their belt while also providing facilities and councils easy access to our online learning hub to upskill current staff,” said Nicholas Au, Aquatic Risk Services Manager | RLSNSW-ACT-TAS.
Participants will focus on the development of various management skills specific to the role of the duty manager including risk management, managing your Lifeguard team, implementing supervision strategies, emergency management and internal training practices.
