The 2020 Bronze and SRC Camp Our summer Bronze Camp will from the 5 - 11 January, 2020. Unfortunately, our new facility will not be operational for this camp and so the traditional live-in accommodation will not be available for candidates. Similar to the 2019 training program, all candidates are asked to make the necessary arrangements for accommodation as required. The Bronze Camp is an opportunity for new and current members to gain their Surf Rescue Certificate or Bronze Medallion award which enables you to actively patrol beaches throughout Australia. During the program, participants will learn a variety of surf skills, first aid, resuscitation & rescue techniques. These skills are transferable to many other engagements and are viewed favourably by employees. Successful candidates will gain nationally recognized units of competency and an official Statement of Attainment from Life Saving Victoria.
Pre-requisites 13+ for the Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) and a 200-metre pool swim in 5 minutes or less. 15+ for the Bronze Medallion (BM) a 400-metre pool swim in 9 minutes or less. No prior experience or knowledge is required. If you have completed similar training, it is a good idea to inform the Trainer Team so that they can tailor the experience to your skills. The training and assessment requirements to gain an SRC is less and so candidates are not required for the evening session. They will be dismissed after the afternoon session. This season we are including the Advanced Resuscitation award for the Bronze candidates. This award delves further into care for the critically ill. This award does come at an extra cost (already included in the price), but adds further ability to a candidate’s skill set.
