Program Delivery

Help TechniqueThe Grey Medallion program has been developed to be delivered in a flexible manner. The number of sessions and the modules selected may vary depending on the ability of participants and the aquatic venue. A combination of theory and practical components helps to consolidate learning. Practical elements of the program may need a number of sessions so that skills may be developed over time. Programs may run over a series of weeks with attendance required on a once a week basis, or they may be conducted using a more intensive format.

The Grey Medallion program is conducted by instructors from all walks of life with varied skills who are well versed with water safety, lifesaving, and basic resuscitation and rescue skills. All instructors are required to complete a training workshop to deliver the Grey Medallion program. The instructor’s workshop is recognised by AUSTSWIM for re-registration hours and would complement the AUSTSWIM Teacher of Adults qualification.

There are numerous resources available to assist in the delivery of the program, enhance learning for participants as well as promotional materials to advertise. Some resources are also available in the following languages: Arabic, Italian, Greek, Chinese and Vietnamese.

All participants receive a certificate of participation to recognise the sessions completed.
