SLSGB SURF LIFE SAVING & SURFING COACH AWARDS UK

 

We offer a range of lifeguard courses of varying intensity and refresher courses for those who need to re-register with the relevant recognised bodies. We also offer combined course packages so as you can become a ISA surf coach too.

All of the beach lifeguard course certifications we deliver are international recognised beach lifeguard courses award (ILS) ranging from junior life saving through to advanced beach lifeguard qualifications.

These courses are not for the faint hearted! The training involves running, swimming and rescuing plus dragging casualties through the surf zone and up the beach using rescue boards and rescue tubes. The courses also cover lifeguard and first aid theory, basic life support and spinal management.
