Introduction:

The Bronze Medallion / Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue) (PUA20119) course provides participants with the skills and knowledge of basic surf awareness in order to be able to participate in lifesaving operations. The course covers all aspects of Lifesaving including rescues‚ the provision of first aid, spinal management, radio communication and beach management.
This is a core award to be a surf lifesaver in Australia. Surf Life Saving SA recommends that participants complete a proficiency for their Bronze Medallion annually.

Assessment

Participants will be assessed individually and in group activities. Assessment is through demonstration, presentation and application of all elements of competency in the workplace. Participants need to display competency in all assessable elements to successfully complete the unit package PUA20119 accreditation.

Assessments must be completed in a similar environment to where patrol activities will be undertaken. Participants will be required to complete activities that may include role-plays, oral and written questioning, practical demonstrations and performing scenarios.

Special Needs and LLN Reasonable Adjustment
Surf Life Saving SA/NT recognises that students participating in its training courses may have special needs. These may include but are not limited to students with language, literacy and/or numeracy problems, or disabilities. Students with special needs should contact SLSSA prior to enrolment to discuss their needs.

Assessment is through demonstration‚ presentation and application of all elements of competency in the workplace. Participants will be required to complete activities that may include oral and written questioning‚ practical demonstrations and performing scenarios.

Please note as of 1st September 2022 the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) have advised Registered Training Organisations that training and assessment activities undertaken during First Aid and CPR courses will revert to pre-COVID conditions. This means learners will be required to demonstrate rescue breathing techniques on manikins and not simulate such skills to the side of the manikin as previously allowed during the pandemic.  Learners will not have the opportunity to request an exemption from providing rescue breaths if they wish to gain a competent result in the Unit of Competency and/or qualification.
