“Survive & Save” is the lifesaving standard and the flagship award for our clubs. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold Levels for you to take part in. You can also choose any one of Medallion, Beach, Stillwater or Sport programmes as areas to specialize in for each medal category.

You can complete just one or all four of the specialist areas before you move on to the next medal. Once you have completed the “Survive & Save” programme there is still the ultimate challenge for you - the Distinction Award. This is presented when you have successfully completed 3 Gold Level categories.
