Surf Life Saving SA as an RTO
SLSSA are a registered training organisation (RTO). This means that many of the courses completed with PNSLSC have units of competency attached. For example there are 4 units with the SRC and 8 with the Bronze including HLTAID001 Provide CPR. This particular unit of competency is often required in the workplace and to remain current must be updated every 12 months.
To complete a course with PNSLSC you will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This allows you to obtain information about your qualifications and units of competency you have obtained whenever you have completed a course with an RTO.
If you do not have a USI you can visit www.usi.gov.au to create one.
