National Pool Lifeguard Qualification
We are running National Pool Lifeguard Qualifications at our leisure centres.
Lifeguards can benefit from varied working hours, which can easily fit around other commitments, the experience of working within a team, and the opportunity to progress within the leisure industry - most leisure managers start as a pool lifeguard and learn essential life skills, including first aid and CPR.
Sign up for your course today and save £100 - we are offering National Pool Lifeguard Qualification at a reduced rate of £150 (usually £250).
Every candidate attending the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification course must be 16 years at the time of the assessment.
You must be able to:
- Jump/dive into deep water
- Swim 50 meters in less than 60 seconds
- Swim 100 meters continuously on front and back in deep water
- Tread water for 30 seconds
- Surface dive to the floor of the pool
- Climb out unaided without ladder/steps where the pool design permits
You will need to attend all of the sessions from your chosen course.
