How to prepare for a Patrol Audit:
The Patrol Audits are a standardised process of assessing compliance of patrols to lifesaving service agreements and standard operating procedures each season. Results of the audits are used in an annual competition where each of the 17 Clubs compete against each other.
Throughout the season, a number of audits will be completed at each Club. These are completed by volunteer assessors who agreed at the beginning of the season to do one audit at each of the 17 Clubs throughout that season.
Once completed, the audit forms then go to the Illawarra Branch office where members are checked to ensure they are proficient in their listed awards. If any member listed in the awards sections is found not proficient in that award, the relevant points for that award will be deducted from the final score.
Scores are totalled at the end of the season. The Club with the highest point score being announced as the winner for the season at the annual Awards of Excellence.
