Senior Lifesaving (Age 13+)

Survive and Save - Medallion Awards

RLSS UK Survive & Save Programme is the lifesaving awards programme for teens and adults. The awards are challenging but fun to complete and they are arranged into Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels to ensure that you continue to develop your lifesaving skills as you progress through the awards.

The awards teach lifesaving rescue, self-rescue, survival, and lifesaving sport skills, and also develop swimming ability and fitness.

These awards are trained in the pool and combine swimming pool based skills with a selection of the skills and theory from the Beach and Stillwater awards.

In the pool, your rescue and survival skills will be developed and your ability to deal with emergency situations will be tested with a range of emergency scenarios. You will also get the opportunity to learn CPR (resuscitation), First Aid and lifesaving sport techniques, as each Medallion Award requires further development of these skills of these skills.

The Bronze, Silver and Gold awards progressively teach more challenging and more advanced lifesaving skills, as you become more and more skilled as a lifesaver.
