Life Saving

Lifesaving 1, 2 and 3 are introductory levels of lifesaving. It aims to provide and develop skills and knowledge of water safety. It equips learners with various lifesaving techniques ranging from land-based non-contact rescues to resuscitation rescues in water. It is preparatory to the Bronze Medallion.

SLSS Resuscitation (CPR) course provide hands-on experience in the lifesaving techniques of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and equips learners with skills to provide crucial emergency care. This is a pre-requisite for Bronze Medallion.

Bronze Medallion level aims to establish a basic level of proficiency in knowledge, understanding and practical ability for aquatic rescue situations. This certification is mandatory for those seeking a career in the aquatic field (ie, becoming a lifeguard or swimming coach). It also builds the foundation to other higher level awards in lifesaving (eg, Pool Lifeguard, Patrol Lifeguard).
