What is the Community Awards Program?
The recently launched LSV Community Awards Program, previously referred to as the LSV Service Member program, focusses on awareness, knowledge and skills associated with water safety, resuscitation and emergency care. The awards are designated into pathways ensuring LSV enable you to cater to a range of students with varying ages and abilities. An image of the Bronze Pathway is included below. From new arrivals to industry professionals, these non-accredited awards will assist in creating better prepared and more resilient Victorian Communities and a better equipped Aquatic Industry workforce.
