Bronze Medallion/ Bronze Cross Challenges

We regularly offer Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross Challenge Courses. We also run Bronze Cross Recertifications. Bronze Medallion teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water-rescue education: judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness. Rescuers learn tows and carries, and defense methods and releases in preparation for challenging rescues of increased risk involving conscious and unconscious victims of various types.

Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training including an introduction to safe supervision in aquatic facilities. Bronze Cross is a prerequisite for all advanced training programs including National Lifeguard and Lifesaving Instructor certification. It includes a timed 600-metre swim.

Prerequisites for Bronze Medallion: Age 13, or Bronze Star; it is implied that the candidate knows how to swim. Prerequisites for Bronze Cross: Bronze Medallion.

The format is three Sundays with an exam on the last day.

Following these, there will be a Challenge class in which the candidates may challenge the next level; or, re-do the exam if they do not pass. This is separate registration.

Bronze Cross Recertifications will be done  in conjunction with the Challenge class.
