EDUCATION AND AWARDS
Surf Life Saving provides an integrated national lifesaving service including volunteer lifesavers and paid lifeguards as well as the Surf Life Saving Emergency Response system. Lifesavers and lifeguards are trained to nationally recognised standards under the Australian Qualifications Framework.
As a member of Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club, you have access to an abundance of training courses and opportunities to obtain qualifications in many areas and volunteer for a range of jobs, from First Aid Officer to Inflatable Rescue Boat Driver. Some courses require pre-requisite qualifications or levels of fitness, so please ensure these are completed prior to enrolling in or commencing a course.
Courses are run throughout the season and are available to all members. Although there are no costs, maximum participation is required.
