Becoming a lifesaver requires a unique perspective on the aquatic environment, and it challenges you to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to keep our beaches safe. By training, you’ll meet like-minded people and join our dynamic club that values teamwork and camaraderie.

The Bronze Medallion course provides participants with the skills and knowledge in order to be able to participate in Surf Life Saving patrol operations. This is a core award to be a surf lifesaver in Australia.

Upon completion of the course, members are assigned to a patrol and become eligible to participate in Surf Lifesaving carnivals. In order to maintain their eligibility to patrol and compete in Surf Lifesaving carnivals, they must attend an annual skills maintenance session.

Courses run for 6 weeks, one weekday evening for theory and dry practical components and one weekend morning for wet practical (run-swim-run, board paddling, rescues, etc) Bronze (15 years+) – must be able to complete a 400m pool swim in less that 9 minutes, SRC (13 years+) – must be able to complete a 200m pool swim in less that 5 minutes.
