Lifesaving

Our Volunteer Lifesavers patrol Currumbin Beach on Weekends and Public Holidays each lifesaving season from September to May.

To become a qualified lifesaver you will need to gain your Cert2 in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue) also known as your Bronze Medallion. You have to be 15 years of age for this award. The Bronze Course takes either 1 week via an intense training course or 6 weeks to complete via an extended training course. The course incorporates skills including pool and surf swimming, knowledge of rescue techniques, first aid, resuscitation and radios.

Once you gain your award you are then placed onto a patrol roster to perform voluntary patrols for the Club. Members who perform patrols for the Club are eligible to compete in surf lifesaving carnivals and receive club benefits including free gym membership, access to training equipment and free use of our Vikings Function Room for functions.

Once a member has obtained their Bronze they must complete an annual proficiency exam each season to continue their patrol and competition activities.

  • Apply First Aid

  • Advanced Resuscitation Techniques Certificate

  • Silver Medallion IRB Driver
