With guest speakers from the Australian Lifeguard Service, Westpac Helicopter Service, and Ambulance Victoria, there is never a dull moment during this week!

Adult Bronze Course
October 2018 (dates to be confirmed)
This is an ideal way for adult learners to gain an award to allow them to assist with their child's water safety; for patrols; to compete; regain their Bronze; or become more actively involved. Participants must be a current financial member of OGSLSC (or another Victorian SLSC).
Sessions aim to fit in with a busy adult lifestyle. Wednesday evenings are theory sessions and Sunday mornings are practical sessions. Participants are required to do re-reading and study, to keep the course length short (usually around 9 sessions).
Cost approx $100.
Participants are required to complete a timed pool swim before commencing the practical parts of the course. For most participants, this can be done on the allocated qualifying swim session at Bellarine Aquatic Centre.
Bronze Medallion: Pool swim 400m in 9 min.
