Participant of Bronze Cross course in the water

Bronze Cross Classes at the YMCA HBB

We offer Bronze Cross classes for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training, including an introduction to safe supervision in aquatic facilities.

In this class we focus on the principles of teamwork, procedures, and the use of special equipment.

To take this course, you must have completed Bronze Medallion AND Emergency and CPR B certifications.

Bronze Cross is a Lifesaving Society (LS) certification offered through the YMCA. It is a prerequisite for all LS advanced training programs, including National Lifeguard and Instructor certifications (YMCA, Lifesaving Society and Red Cross).
