Each year our highly qualified volunteer trainers equip our members (members of the community just like you) in vital life saving skills. Your Bronze Medallion or Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) are the starting points to becoming a life saver and participate in surf life saving operations (beach patrols) or help out with water safety at our Sunday Nipper program. But your journey doesn’t have to stop there! There are a range of education pathways you can follow to further enhance your lifesaving qualifications including advanced resuscitation, first aid, drive and crew the Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB). Education pathways available
The SLSNSW Awards and Qualifications chart provides an overview of courses and associated units of competency.
Our patrolling members also undertake annual skills maintenance to ensure they remain up to date with best practice and ready to respond to any rescue or first aid situation on our beach. Members involved in education at our Club gain nationally recognised qualifications in training and assessment which can be utilised in their careers. We also offer CPR training to community groups through schools and sporting organisations.
