The ongoing development, education and training of lifesavers is critical to ensure the highest level of service is provided on the beach. ISLSC offers the opportunity to all volunteer lifesavers to undertake training and development commencing with Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) or Bronze Medallion (BM) progressing to more advanced lifesaving and emergency care training.
- Bronze Medallion training is conducted during an intensive week-long live-in camp in December each year and, depending on demand, as a casual program in late December/early January in conjunction with the Nipper SRC program.
- Surf Rescue Certificate training is conducted at the same time as the Nipper program in late December/early January. Candidates must be a minimum of 13 years old to participate.
Other awards training is held at various times during the season and members will be notified of upcoming opportunities.
