Pacific Palms Surf Life Saving Club will hold bronze medallion and surf rescue certificate courses in late September.
Candidates, who are keen to acquire a bronze medallion, have to proved they will be 15 years of age before the end of this December, a member of the club and have completed a 400 metre timed pool swim in under nine minutes.
Surf rescue certificate candidates are required to be 13 years of age before the end of this coming December, be a club member (nipper or active) and have completed a 200M timed swim in under five minutes.
Once again, they have to provide evidence.
According to Janne Moran, these two awards form part of the pathway towards Certificate II Public Safety, Aquatic Rescue.
They are the entry-level courses for paid lifeguards and all volunteer patrolling lifesavers, including those wishing to support nippers in the water on Sundays, Janne said.
"Adults can do the SRC and still do water safety; you don't have to do the bronze medallion to support nippers in the water and or do patrols.
"If you are interested in gaining these awards and joining in the fun on the beach, patrols, supporting nippers, getting fit, competition and/or social events that the club holds."
The courses will be held on Sunday, September 22 from 11am in the club house.
