BECOME A LIFEGUARD
GET YOUR SURF LIFEGUARD AWARD
To gain your Surf Lifeguard Award you need to be aged 14 or older and be a member of a Surf Lifesaving Club. You will be taught first aid, resuscitation, practical rescue skills and you must complete a 400m pool swim within the time limit (currently 9 minutes). The Club will provide the instruction, training and equipment you need to learn the skills to be ready to sit an exam that tests these skills.
The exam tests both practical and theoretical lifesaving knowledge that you have been taught. Exams are run throughout the summer so as soon as you are ready, you can put your learning to the test.
