This course aims to equip participants with the skills and knowledge required to confidently manage a beach and a patrol as a Surf Life Saving Patrol Captain. The Silver Medallion Patrol Captain (SMPC) course is designed to be delivered using a blended learning approach. This means that participants will learn using a variety of methods, including eLearning, on-the-job (OTJ) training and face-to-face sessions.
This award was launched in 2021 and supersedes the previous Silver Medallion Beach Management (SMBM) award. For members who currently hold the SMBM, a bridging course has been developed and we anticipate will be rolled out during the 2023-24 season. It is important to note that members will eventually need to upskill, however, this process will be conducted over the coming seasons and a deadline is yet to be determined by the SLST Lifesaving Advisory Committee.
