PD-01) Aquatic Industry - Child Safety for Front Line Staff

PD Child-FL

The safety and wellbeing of children should sit at the heart of any organisation’s values. However, this does not mean that the development and implementation of child safe practices is always as good as it needs to be or that improvements can not be made.  

Further to this, ensuring children’s’ safety in an aquatic industry context can present a range of additional and specialised challenges. This is why Royal Life Saving has developed two online child safety modules; one targeted at frontline workers and the other targeted at management level staff.

The chief purpose of the modules is to assist the aquatic industry, and it’s workforce, to develop a clear understanding of the expectations, legal requirements and best practices relating to child safety.

PD-03) Aquatic Industry - Communication Skills

PD Comm Sk

It's quite simple, effective communication is the lifeblood of any organisation! How all levels of staff communicate with each other and how they communicate with your patrons and external stakeholders shapes the daily operations and overall success of any business.  This online module aims to take this key skill to a higher level; to give your staff the knowledge, skills and techniques to communicate more effectively. 

PD-04) Aquatic Industry - Conflict Management

PD Conflict

Conflict in the workplace can be highly damaging at an individual and organisational level.  It’s negative impacts should not be underestimated, however, it also presents an opportunity for individuals and organisations to develop and strengthen their business and the relationships that support it.
 
Like many of the professional development products on offer through Royal Life Saving the conflict management course has been written in response to feedback from the aquatic industry and with aquatic industry employees firmly in mind.  The course is broken down into four main learning themes:
  • Understanding conflict
  • Identifying conflict
  • Personality types and conflict
  • How to manage conflict situations
Each of these themes is explored through several animated scenarios created in familiar aquatic industry settings. Each scenario examines various pathways of a conflict situation depending on the actions and responses of participants to help guide them through the key steps and strategies for managing conflict and support them to understand their reactions and behaviours and the potential outcomes.
 
The course should take roughly 90 minutes to complete. The course training asks participants to reflect, discuss and then apply the knowledge and skills gained from the online course to a range of realistic scenarios that employees in the aquatic industry face.

PD-05) Aquatic Industry - Cultural Competence

PD Cultural

The Cultural Competence Program is directly aimed for staff working in the aquatic and community recreation sector. It is designed to enable workers to gain a better, broader and deeper understanding of the needs of communities from other countries when it comes to attending an aquatic facility, accessing a public swimming pool and being involved in a formal swimming program.

For many people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, these seemingly simple interactions can  be daunting.  Preparedness of the aquatic sector will help deliver a positive experience at the pool…one which results in a fun, friendly and safe experience.

Completing the program will ensure aquatic sector staff gain practical skills and cultural specific knowledge that they can apply at the workplace and in everyday life.

On top of this, being a Culturally Qualified Centre can assist your Aquatic Centre to attract new markets as well as meet growing governance and community service obligations.

Much of the Cultural and Linguistic Diverse (CaLD) community has had limited access and involvement to pools and swimming programs, so it is imperative for the aquatic industry to gain cultural competence to assist in easing all cultures into a fun, friendly and safe experience around water. 

Course Duration: 3 hours
Delivery Mode: Online
Pre-requisites: Nil

The Cultural Competency course is geared toward developing understanding in culture, diversity, and inclusion through: 

  • Meanings and definitions
  • Ways that cultural diversity contributes to competitive advantage
  • Unconscious bias in decision making and how to remedy it
  • Different cultures’ ways of thinking, acting and communicating
  • How the above is affected by values, attitudes and beliefs
  • How different people of different cultures adapt to new cultures
     

PD-07) Aquatic Industry - Fatigue Management

PD Fatigue

Self-care during and after a shift is very important. Fatigue management assists you to know and look for warning signs, have an understanding of the body systems and the various effects of fatigue.

Determining all the factors that cause fatigue can be difficult.  

PD-08) Aquatic Industry - Teaching for Participants with Autism Spectrum

PD Autism

The Swim Teaching for Participants on the Autism Spectrum Professional Development module is designed for swim teachers that are starting out in this area of specialised teaching, or those with experience looking to test and update their knowledge and skills.  The combination of knowledge building and practical tips and strategies will give teachers the ability to move forward with confidence and clarity and deliver highly effective and enjoyable lessons in this rewarding but sometimes challenging area.
 
The module should take about 75 minutes to complete and covers the following topics:
 

  • Understanding what autism is, and what it isn’t
  • Identifying the strengths, interests, characteristics and behaviours of people on the spectrum and better understanding how they may think and learn
  • Understanding the relationship between autism, water, swimming and drowning prevention
  • Preparing lessons or programs tailored to individual participants on the spectrum
  • Preparing for and managing behaviours you may experience when teaching swimming to participants on the spectrum
  • Utilising a range of strategies and techniques during lesson delivery

 The module includes interviews with children on the spectrum that are learning to swim, their parents or carers and their swim teachers, along with footage of swim lessons in action. All of this is designed to help bring to life key messages and enable you to engage with the subject matter and take it with you as you continue your teaching journey.

Course Duration: 1 hours
Delivery Mode: Online
Pre-requisites: Swimming & Water Safety Teacher

PD-09) Aquatic Industry - Teacher of Life Saving

PD-10) Aquatic Industry - Advanced Supervision Skills

PD Adv Sup

The Lifeguard Advanced Supervision Skills module is designed for Lifeguards with a degree of experience that are looking to evaluate and extend their current knowledge and skills around supervision and scanning and better understand the visual, cognitive and physical challenges they face when supervising an aquatic environment. The module is based on the premise that when these challenges are properly understood, they can then be more effectively addressed. 
 
This module will:
 
  • ask Lifeguards to reflect on their knowledge, skills and training so far
  • ask Lifeguards to analyse their experiences supervising a pool and the internal and external challenges they have faced
  • define these challenges, familiar and unfamiliar, and explain why they exist
  • provide a range of strategies and solutions to overcome these challenges and outline a range of best practice techniques; some of which should be known to Lifeguards and others which will be new and can be added to their skill set.
 
The module is highly visual and includes a range of animated and image-based video presentations, along with visual exercises to complete and regular knowledge prompts and checks.  Recommended learning time is approximately 40 minutes and in order to receive a completion certificate participants need to complete the knowledge checks at the end of each topic.

PD-12) Aquatic Industry - Supervision Planning

PD Sup Plan

The Supervision Planning module is designed for staff tasked with developing and implementing the lifeguard supervision plan at an aquatic facility. While targeted at Facility Managers and Duty Managers, anyone interested in knowing more about the Guidelines for Safe Pool Operations (GSPO), the supervision planning process and how to best lead a lifeguard team will also benefit greatly from completing the module.  The content in the module is based on the Aquatic Supervision Planning guidelines within the GSPO. It presents this information in a practical, easy-to-understand format designed to enable participants to connect and apply the information to their day-to-day work context.  
 
This module will:
  • ask participants to reflect on their current knowledge, skills and experience developing and implementing supervision plans
  • enable participants to better understand, interpret and apply the information contained within the aquatic supervision planning guidelines in the GSPO.
  • develop participants’ understanding of the risk management processes in the context of aquatic supervision
  • step participants through the process of developing a supervision system and supervision plan; highlighting key items for consideration in the planning and ongoing management process
  • facilitate a deeper understanding of the requirements and challenges of working with lifeguards and fulfilling lifeguard supervisory and management roles.
 
The module is highly visual and interactive and includes a range of activities and exercises to complete in the process of developing and adapting key elements of a supervision plan in response to changing conditions.  Recommended learning time is approximately 50 minutes and to receive a completion certificate participants need to complete the interactive exercises and knowledge checks.
