Bronze Medallion

Bronze Medallion teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education: judgement, knowledge, skill and fitness. You will learn tows, carries, and release methods in preparation for challenging rescues of increased risk. Swimmers must be available for the exam date. This is the official first step to becoming a lifeguard if you are 13 years of age or older. All students must be available for the exam (last day of class).

Required Materials: 

  • CPR barrier device, gloves and a whistle (available at the ALC desk for $9)
  • Canadian Lifesaving Manual required ($42)

Pre-Requisites: 13 years of age or older OR completion of Bronze Star. Participants should have completed (or nearly completed) their learn to swim program (i.e. I Can Swim)
