Become a Surf Lifeguard
Qualifying as a Surf Lifeguard
To be a qualified lifeguard you must be 14 years or older and pass your Surf Lifeguard Award exam. The exam comprises:
400m pool swim in under 9 minutes
run/swim/run in the surf
practical surf knowledge test.
Each season active Surf Lifeguards must perform a refresher test. This includes a swim, resuscitation test and first aid questions. It is not designed to fail people but to ensure their fitness and knowledge is up to the required standard.
