Bronze Medallion Lifesaving Course

Bronze Medallion (BM) teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education: judgment, knowledge, skill, and fitness. BM challenges the candidate both mentally and physically. Judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness – the four components of water rescue – form the basis of Bronze Medallion training. Candidates acquire the assessment and problem-solving skills needed to make good decisions in, on and around the water. Bronze Medallion is a prerequisite for Assistant Lifeguard training in Bronze Cross.   This course has a timed swim of 400 meters in 12 minutes.

Course Manual will be required to be purchased from the instructor at some course locations.

Participants at the Jewish Community Center must be fully vaccinated.

(Combo courses featuring both Bronze Medallion and Cross are also available)
