Training and Education
The Coogee Beach SLSC places a high priority on education and training. Whether its ensuring members are adequately prepared to perform rescues, introducing children to safe choices at the beach or educating members of the public in first aid and CPR, we are committed. The Education and Training Team is vital in ensuring members are equipped with the correct skills to perform the primary aim of surf lifesaving “Patrolling the Beach” and offer the courses listed below to our fully registered and financial members:
Why should I become a Lifesaver?
When you become a life saver, the skills you learn are skills for life. The courses will give you knowledge which can be applied in a number of situations on, the beach, on the road, at home and in the workplace. If you complete your Bronze Medallion training at Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club you will not only become a life saver, you will become part of our club community.
Club members need to have their Bronze Medallion or Surf Rescue Certificate to be able to use club equipment, compete and join our patrols. New members are encouraged to become qualified lifesavers by completing their Bronze Medallion. The club provides support to members who want to gain surf lifesaving qualifications and encourages each member to undertake as many qualifications as possible.
Once you have gained your Bronze Medallion you can further enhance your life saving skills by undertaking further courses.
