The Bronze and Rescue awards strand teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education: judgement, knowledge, skills and fitness.

The central component of the Bronze program is the Bronze Medallion which has been operating for over 100 years with many Australians undertaking the program since commencement. The Bronze Medallion is considered the pinnacle of the awards in the community.

SAT-Swim Australia Teacher
  • Junior Squad and Assistant Coach This coach is qualified to deliver basic training sessions that develop the swimming technique of novice and junior swimmers – this is generally defined as swimmers 12- years and under who are still acquiring the skills needed to compete successfully. The coach may work independent of any supervision as they are fully qualified to provide such instructional training. Coaches at this level are also encouraged to work with older swimmers (i.e. to gain valuable ‘on-the-job’ training), but only as an ‘assistant coach’ under the supervision of a coach with appropriate qualifications.
  • Bronze Coach This coach is competent to plan, conduct and evaluate a range of training programs suitable for the diverse range of ages and swimming abilities found among registered Club swimmers. A Bronze Coach must plan and supervise training for multiple squad units to best prepare swimmers of different ages, abilities, and competition goals to achieve their potential. All Bronze Coaches should have the skills to prepare swimmers for Club, District and State (or higher) level competitions. Bronze is the accepted standard for coaches implementing a diverse Swim Club program.
  • Silver Coach This coach is competent to plan, conduct and evaluate advanced training programs suitable for swimmers competing at State and Australian Age Championship (or higher) level competitions. A Silver Coach has demonstrated the ability to train swimmers who have achieved National Age qualifying times. The Silver Coach should have the skills to structure a complex training environment that allows for a progression from Club and State level competitions to success at the National level.
  • Gold Coach This coach is competent to plan, conduct and evaluate advanced training programs suitable for swimmers competing at Australian Open Championships (or higher) level competitions. The Gold Coach should have the experience and knowledge to provide coaching leadership and serve in a mentoring or educational role to assist coaches at lower levels.
  • CS Competitive Swimming Junior Squad and Assistant Coaching course has now been rebadged as the Swim Australia Teacher of Competitive Swimming (SAT CS) Course. As a result the theory is now all self paced home study with more practical but reduced face to face hours and the price has significantly reduced. A SAT CS has the competence to assist in planning, organising, delivery and evaluation of sessions, developing the technique of novice swimmers and to teach junior swimmers (i.e. swimmers 12-years and younger) who are in the early stages of the competitive swimming development and/or assist a suitably qualified (and licenced) Coach in the delivery of competitive swimming programs for age-group (i.e. 13-18 years) and open swimmers.

The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) is the world’s largest recreational diving membership and diver training organization founded in 1966 by John Cronin and Ralph Erickson. Cronin was originally a NAUI instructor who decided to form his own organization with Erickson, and to break diver training down into different courses instead of the single universal course then prevalent.
