Please note: Due to LSV changes, all members wishing to attend a Portsea requal must sign up online through member training. The online theory must be done in advance, and then you will be responsible for taking a photo of your requal card and uploading it to member training. We will not be able to process anyone who hasn’t signed up or anyone that doesn’t upload their card after completing the requal.
