Bronze Medallion awarded 80 years on

29 June 2018

We had the absolute pleasure of awarding Mr. John Donaldson his Bronze Medallion and certificate 80 years after he completed his training with RLSSWA.

Mr. Donaldson completed his Bronze Medallion in 1939 in Fremantle, but as World War 2 broke out soon after completion and due to metal rationing, he did not receive his medallion for his efforts.

At 95 years of age, Mr. Donaldson is still fighting fit and a very proud ambassador for lifesaving – it was our pleasure to award Mr. Donaldson his Bronze Medallion almost 80 years after he completed his course.

The Royal Life Saving Society Bronze Medallion is recognised as the minimum standard for a qualified lifesaver. This course will enhance your personal survival skills while providing you with the knowledge and skills to develop the level of judgement, technique and physical ability required to safely carry out water rescues.

Many workplaces recognise the Bronze Medallion qualification and can be highly desirable for employment. Having gained this qualification individuals are now eligible to complete the Pool Lifeguard Award.

The Bronze Medallion course is delivered in Perth and in many regional locations in Western Australia.
