The Lifesaving Society's Credit
System recognizes individual needs and interests by
encouraging leadership personnel to learn and improve through
continuing education and professional development:
- Earn 3 credits during the 2-year certification period by
participating in courses, clinics and training programs identified
on the Lifesaving Society Credit
- Download and save
the fillable Credit Form to your computer
- Record your credits. Credits for other agency certfications and
teaching Swim for Life require the signature of the course
evaluator or the pool supervisor.
- Print or save the completed form.
- E-mail the completed fillable form to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax
to 709-738-1475, or mail the completed Credit Form to the Society's
office. Payment is required before your new certifications cards
are issued, so please call us with your credit form information or
include a cheque when you mail the form to us.
- We will send you a renewed certification card (valid for
another 2 years).
- Leadership awards recertified at different times are subject to
a recertification fee each time. Recertifying all your leadership
certifications at the same time reduces your cost.
Examiners and Trainers note: Examiners
must select at least 1 credit from items on the Credit List marked
with a *. Trainers must have taught an instructor course in the
last two years.
