As part of the water safety team at an event/activity, you will work closely with officials,water safety supervisors, Junior Activities Coordinators and/or first aid officers to ensure the safety of all members and participants when entering the water.

Applicants are required to hold a current Blue Card and the relevant qualifications to suit the type of role they will be undertaking as part of the water safety team. These may include SLSA Bronze Medallion/Surf Rescue Certificates, IRB Crewman’s Certificate or an IRB Driver’s Certificate.
