If you are 15 or older, why not have fun these school holidays and make some new friends – and gain your bronze medallion?

The intense 7 day live in course, held  January 10 to 17, will help you attain a Bronze Medallion: Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue).

If you are aged 13 to 15 years you can enrol in a Surf Rescue Certificate and Resuscitation Award (SRC).

Throughout the week participants stay in dormitory accommodation at Rainbow Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. There will be adult supervision at all times along with experienced junior helpers.

President  of Rainbow Beach SLSC, Justin Schooth said, “The Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue) is an accredited course towards your QCST (year 12), giving 4 out of a possible 20 points.

“The course is for people interested in patrolling at Rainbow Beach for this season as part of the surf lifesaving club. A minimum one season of rostered patrols is a club requirement.”

The full cost of the Bronze Medallion course is $250 including GST. This includes training manual, Cert II workbook, full patrol uniform, patrol / club cap, club togs, hi-vis safety rash shirt or singlet, club polo shirt, as well as food and accommodation for the week. This does not include club membership.

A swim test must be completed before the camp: a 400 metre pool swim must be achieved in less than 9 minutes (Bronze Medallion) or 200 metres in 5 minutes (SRC).
