The aims of Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) competition are to improve the skills of IRB drivers and crew, improve skills and knowledge and to promote safety awareness techniques in simulated rescue scenarios.

The minimum requirement to participate in IRB competition is a Bronze Medallion and IRB crew award. Competition is run over the winter months and typically consists of 4 interclub carnivals followed by the State Titles and then Aussies. Due to the level of skill needed to participate safely, there are set requirements regarding training hours as well as a confirmation from a qualified coach that participants have the appropriate level of skill. Therefore, a commitment to training is required.
