The Lifesaving Society certifies Bronze Examiners. Examiner candidates are experienced Lifesaving Instructors who undergo specific training in examination standards and apprenticeship.
Bronze Examiners are empowered to certify Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross candidates. Bronze Examiners who hold Distinction are also empowered to certify Distinction candidates.
Lifesaving Instructors should first gain experience teaching Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross before applying for Examiner status.
Prerequisites to certification: Lifesaving Instructor certification; taught or co-taught at least one Bronze Medallion or one Bronze Cross course. Do you have the prerequisites to become a Bronze Examiner?
Examiner course: Successful completion of the Lifesaving Society Examiner course. This checklist identifies the learning outcomes you must achieve to be successful on the course.
Apprenticeship: Successful apprenticeship on one Bronze Medallion or one Bronze Cross examination with a current Bronze Examiner who is an Examiner Mentor, and submission of the completed Examiner Training Record to the Society's office.

Costs: There is no Lifesaving Society fee for the Examiner course. Certification fee payable to the Lifesaving Society upon submission of the Examiner Training Record.
Recertification: Only current Examiners may certify candidates. Remain current by recertifying within 24 months of the last certification date. Recertification is through the Society's professional development credit system. Is it time to recertify?
