Shoalhaven Heads Surf Club runs courses for new members in October and February to prepare trainees for joining club patrol teams on completion of the course

Bronze Medallion


Surf Rescue Certificate

The Bronze medallion and Surf Rescue Certificate are the basic entry awards for new patrol members on the beach.

The Bronze/SRC course takes place over a minimum of 6 sessions usually on Sunday mornings. The training is a mix of practical skills, face to education and online based modules

The SRC is a short form course is completed by final year Nippers and junior cadets under 15, or parent volunteers doing water safety for Junior Activities. SRC holders become part of our patrol teams but usually can’t get further awards until they complete the Bronze.

Other add on qualifications post Bronze including Advanced Resuscitation Training Cert, IRB Driver/Crew, Radio Operator, Silver Medallion, Gold Medallion can be taken as patrol members build skills and experience

If you have an existing current qualification in similar skill areas check with our trainers if prior knowledge credits may be applicable when you join us.
