Course Enquiry

The Bronze Medallion and Surf Rescue Certificate course provides participants with the skills and knowledge of patrolling and surf awareness in order to be able to participate in lifesaving operations. These are the core awards to be a surf lifesaver in Australia.

Patrolling at Port Melbourne Life Saving Club

Being a lifesaver at Port Melbourne is not just about keeping the beach safe, our Patrollers are an integral part of our Nippers program providing water safety and instruction.  Our cadets become big brothers and sisters to our younger age groups providing support and encouragement and inspiring our Nippers to become volunteer lifesavers.

Whilst Port is a relatively safe bay beach we also act as a local First Aid centre for the area attending to casualties in the water, on the beach, the bike path and road accidents. We also provide water safety at public events and sports events.

With over 200 Nippers every Sunday morning we rely on our Patrollers and Age Managers to ensure the Program is safe and run professionally.
