Patrol Member - Surf Rescue Certificate

Entry Level

Get the perfect introduction to surf lifesaving with this preparatory role to join a beach patrol team.

The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) is a stepping stone towards gaining a Bronze Medallion and provides participants with basic skills and knowledge of first aid, rescues, and CPR, enabling them to patrol as part of a patrol team. This is the perfect pathway from Junior Activities to patrolling ranks or for parents/guardians who wish to assist with water safety during nipper programs, sports carnivals or training.


Surf Rescue Certificate holders must be:

  • a minimum of 13 years old on day of course commencement
  • able to complete a 200m pool swim in less than 5 minutes
  • a member of a surf life saving club.
