This is a streamlined Bronze Course so current SRC Holders can upgrade to Bronze. For this reason, it is important that you already have strong water/beach skills as we will be focussing on the dry components. The first practical session will assess your wet skills and if not acceptable you will not be allowed to continue and will need to complete a full Bronze Course.
