Do I need my Bronze Medallion to be a Pool Lifeguard?

While the Bronze Medallion Award is no longer a pre-requisite for Pool Lifeguard training in NSW, it is still a very useful entry level for those interested in a career in aquatics, or just for personal interest. As well as being a great test of fitness, the Bronze Medallion is a great introduction into contact and non-contact rescue techniques.
