High School Credits

British Columbia and Yukon high school students can use Lifesaving Society BC & Yukon certifications for high school graduation requirements. The following certificate credits can be used as credits to graduate high school:

  • Bronze Cross is worth 2 credits for Grade 11.
  • Bronze Cross and Lifesaving Instructor (LSI) are worth 3 credits for Grade 11
  • National Lifeguard Pool option (NL) is worth 2 credits for Grade 12.

Students may only use each credit course for the assigned grades (i.e. students cannot combine both certifications towards one grade). The awards do not need to be current.

If the student has already used Bronze Cross for 2 credits, then completes LSI at a later date, they can replace the 2 credits from Bronze Cross with 3 credits for LSI and Bronze Cross combined.

Students are asked to inform their school counsellor in charge of curriculum that they wish to use these extracurricular courses as part of the “External Credit Program.” Students will be asked to provide proof of their certification card(s).

For more information about high school credits, talk to your school counsellor or see the list of Organizations Offering External Credentials and the Ministry of Education’s Handbook of Procedures for the Graduation Program.
