This year SLSQ is excited to launch into online learning capabilities for our member education. The main aim of providing on-line learning is to provide the following benefits:

1. Flexibility - for members to participate in learning in their own time at their own pace

2. More hands on training - as participants complete more theoretical learning in their own time, this means that more time can be speni on practical training when at the surf club

3. Environmentally Friendly - by completing theory activities on-line, less paper based education materials need to be produced to conduct the course

4. Automatic self marking - activities completed on-line will be self marking which means Trainers and Assessors can spend more time on practical components of a course and less time on the dreaded paper based administrative side of a course

SLSQ is starting off slow by trialing it's online capacity by providing the 2011/12 Proficiency Paper online for members to complete in their own time.
