Modification History

Release 1.  This is the first release of this qualification in the PUA - Public Safety Training Package.

Qualification Description

The PUA20119 Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue) is designed for introductory level participants in aquatic rescue activities. This will include rescuing, resuscitating and performing basic first aid in aquatic incidents that may involve oceans, rivers, swimming pools and vessels operating in coastal areas.

The role of an aquatic rescuer is to recognise and rescue a person experiencing difficulty in the water, to identify and use different types of rescue equipment and to communicate with community members and other agencies in the event of an aquatic emergency. This may include undertaking basic patrol duties and developing surf awareness to be able to participate in lifesaving operations.

This qualification includes the units of competency required by aquatic rescuers to perform a range of activities such as responding to rescue incidents and conducting patrols. It typically involves working as a team member, under guidance, in aquatic rescue operations.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
