SLSGB BEACH LIFEGUARD COURSE UK (NVBLQ)

Price: £195 per person
Duration: 5 days
Location: Wales UK & Worldwide

The SLSGB beach lifeguard course is a slightly different award but never the less is an essential qualification to work as a lifeguard on beaches here in the UK. It is also recognised in many countries abroad too. The courses obviously gives you the opportunity to take on a job as a beach lifeguard and not only allows you to progress towards surf instructor status too (since it is a prerequisite to the course) but also provides a solid foundation of medical first aid to lead towards a career in the emergency services too.

On completing this award, you will be considered competent enough to be responsible for the safety of others at the beach and other open water locations whether inland or at coastal, surf, river and estuarial sites.

The SLSGB lifeguard course, there are some basic competencies you will have to have in terms of fitness. You should expect to spend up to 5 hours a day in the water, so need to be a strong swimmer!

The training on this course is not dissimilar to the SLSGB qualification. It is made up of 5 core modules including life guarding theory, resuscitation techniques, pool work, classroom based activates and work in the open water.

Beyond skills and expertise that you would expect from a lifeguard award including rescue skills, appropriate use and maintenance of equipment and beach safety operations procedures, you’ll also need to learn, adapt and improve on your own physical fitness, awareness, self-discipline, team working abilities and safe supervision of others.

Expect to cover in the syllabus of this course:

  • Lifeguard theory
  • Cardio pulmonary resuscitation including the use of defibrillators
  • First aid administration on site and away from the water
  • Pool Skills
  • Open Water Skills including sea rescues using a variety of equipment

In order to satisfy the requirements for receiving your award, an independent SLSGB qualified assessor will examine your knowledge and understanding of the essential principles for safe practises as a beach lifeguard. The qualification is valid for two years after receipt.

Likewise with any of our courses and qualifications, if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for more details. We are always more than happy to answer any of your questions!
