Join Team Yeppoon

The first step to becoming a volunteer lifesaver at Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club is to obtain a Bronze Medallion (Cert II in Public Safety) Award. The course is available to anyone from 14 years of age (must be 15 years of age at time of the assessment) and runs for approximately 8 weeks. Training comprises of practical training on the beach and theory.

Some of the practical sessions include:

  • Signals from the shore or from the water
  • Use of Rescue Tubes
  • Use of Rescue Boards
  • Spinal rescues
  • Surf swimming
  • CPR on the beach and on land
  • Combination of rescue scenarios demonstrating the use of tubes, boards and CPR

Once you have gained your Bronze Medallion you will be added to the patrol roster and expected to perform rostered volunteer beach patrols at Yeppoon throughout each season (approximately one 4 hour patrol per month on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday). You can then choose to complete other Branch and Club run courses that are on offer. If you are eager to compete at Surf Sports carnivals you can also start training with our water or beach squads and enter carnivals throughout the season.
