Bonze Course

The aim of this course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge of patrolling and surf awareness in order to be able to participate in lifesaving operations. These are the core awards to becoming a volunteer surf lifesaver in Australia.

The bronze is a combination of online modules through the SLSA eLearning Member Area, in class sessions and practical/water sessions.
