For over 100 years, the Bronze Medallion 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.

Earning the Bronze Medallion is a real achievement, and your students will become part of the deep history of lifesaving. Students will achieve an international lifesaving standard and develop a skill set that is highly sought after in the community, by employers, and which is either recommended or mandatory for many careers such as teaching, emergency services, outdoor education and the aquatics industry.

The units of competency that can be achieved through completion of the Bronze Medallion have vocational outcomes. More information on the career and training opportunities can be found in the training section of the website.

The Bronze Medallion covers theory and practical water components and participants must be competent swimmers and a minimum age of 14 years.
