Each season active Surf Lifeguards must perform a refresher test. This includes a swim, resuscitation test and first aid questions. It is not designed to fail people but to ensure their fitness and knowledge is up to the required standard.
Refreshers will be done patrol by patrol at the begining of each season.
If you have your Surf Lifeguard Award but have not been active on patrols for some time contact us at email@example.com and we will arrange a refresher test for you and assign you to a patrol. You do not have to sit the Surf Lifeguard Award exam (or Bronze Medallion as it used to be called) again.
