Open Water Lifeguard Qualifications
For the past three years, RLSS UK has offered an Open Water Lifeguard ‘bolt-on’ module, targeting qualified swimming pool lifeguards. The ‘bolt-on’ module equips lifeguards with both the knowledge and experience to keep people safe in open water. This course is delivered over one day.
Responding to demand, continuing the commitment to support the growth of open water sites and improving safety the RLSS UK launched a new Open Water Lifeguard Qualification, enabling candidates with no previous lifeguard experience to become qualified. This course is delivered over three days.
RTA has sucessfully delivered these courses and can also p[rovide on-going training for lifeguards logging hours ready for renewal.
