Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC)

The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) is the developmental award in hope of eventually achieving the Bronze Medallion. It gives the holder the ability to perform patrols and water safety duties, essentially working as an apprentice to Bronze Medallion holders.

SRC courses are usually run concurrently with Bronze Medallion in order to encourage full development.

Surf Rescue Certificate Courses are usually run in house at your local Surf Life Saving Club, please contact them to express your interest.
