Bronze Cross Recertification Course - May 20th 2022


May 20, 2022


Lifesaving Society


Shandy Kariatsumari


Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training, including an introduction to safety supervision. 

The Lifesaving Society’s Bronze Cross begins the transition from lifesaving to lifeguarding and prepares candidates for responsibilities as Assistant Lifeguards. Candidates strengthen and expand their lifesaving skills and begin to apply the principles and techniques of active surveillance in aquatic facilities. Bronze Cross emphasizes the importance of teamwork and communication in preventing and responding to aquatic emergencies. Bronze Cross is a prerequisite for advanced training in the Society’s National Lifeguard and leadership certification programs.

The recertification course is for individuals who have already received their Bronze Cross Certification. 

Tofino's Bronze Cross courses will take place outdoors on various Tofino Beaches, therefore wetsuits are required. Attendees will build leadership, rescue, and water skills in and around the surf to receive national certification through the Lifesaving Society.
