Royal Life Saving is Australia's largest provider of water safety education. Our programs are designed to build awareness of dangers in aquatic environments and to arm the community with lifesaving skills used in both prevention and rescue.
For over 100 years, the Bronze Medallion award has been the benchmark for lifesavers all over the world.
The ‘Bronze’ builds knowledge and skills in rescue, personal survival and emergency care and is awarded in recognition of the ability to perform aquatic rescues in a safe and efficient manner.
The skills developed through achieving the Bronze Medallion will last a lifetime.
The Grey Medallion program is a water safety and lifesaving skills initiative for older adults.
It aims to encourage a healthy, independent and active lifestyle through the development of essential skills in order to participate in aquatic recreation activities safely.
This practical program provides older adults with personal survival techniques, improved swimming skills, skills to deal with emergency situations and a thorough understanding of water safety knowledge in order to reduce the likelihood of drowning.
