Surf Coach Lifesaver Course France | Beach Lifeguard Courses France

Due to the legal conditions we can only recognise internationally valid certificates that entitle the holder to work as a lifesaver or lifeguard in an ocean environment - courses done in pools, lakes, rivers or the various courses for other water activities with some sort of connection to the topics First Aid and Beach Lifesaving cannot be recognised as this could lead to substantial troubles in case of an emergency.  

As we are well aware of the fact that a lot of the certificates that are around these days are not meeting these requirements, we are happy to be able to offer - in cooperation with our partner and waterman Dean Gough - the ISA / ILS Water Safety Course in combination with the Surf Lifesaving Great Britain (SLSGB)Surf Coach Lifesaver Award, and thus the two most renowned lifesaving accreditations worldwide, directly after the Surf Instructor courses.


  • To establish a standard, which creates a level of competence in life saving enabling back up to qualified lifeguards

We are happy to have an appropriate location for the definitely demanding course, as a result of its infrastructure we can run the course as smooth and time efficient as possible! 

To prepare those instructors who want to work in France for the French lifesaving standards we will also show you how to use fins (flippers) - please bring these with you for the course if you are interested in this fin lifesaving training!
