Bronze Cross Recertification

Description

Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training, including an introduction to safety supervision. Bronze Cross is a prerequisite for all advanced training programs, including National Lifeguard (NL) and Instructor certifications. Participants develop stroke efficiency and endurance in timed swims (600 metres). Bronze Cross includes CPR-C.


Prerequisites

  • Bronze Cross

Recognition

Bronze Cross


Currency

All Canadian Swim Patrol levels and the Bronze Medal Family are considered lifetime awards, meaning that they do not need to be current to take on-going training (e.g. Bronze Cross does not need to be current to take Lifesaving Instructor or NL Pool). However, if a Bronze award is used for employment (e.g. some jurisdictions use Bronze Cross holders to supervise school groups or camps), the BC & Yukon Branch recommends the award be recertified every 2 years

Bronze Cross

Description

Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training, including an introduction to safety supervision. 

The Lifesaving Society’s Bronze Cross begins the transition from lifesaving to lifeguarding and prepares candidates for responsibilities as Assistant Lifeguards. Candidates strengthen and expand their lifesaving skills and begin to apply the principles and techniques of active surveillance in aquatic facilities. Bronze Cross emphasizes the importance of teamwork and communication in preventing and responding to aquatic emergencies. Bronze Cross is a prerequisite for advanced training in the Society’s National Lifeguard and leadership certification programs.

 

To be employed as an assistant lifeguard, an individual should be a minimum of 15 years of age and hold (at a minimum) a current Lifesaving Society Bronze Cross certification and a current Emergency First Aid certification. 


Prerequisites

  • Bronze Medallion

Recognition

Bronze Cross Medal and certification card.
