Candidates all pass their NPLQ RLSS Pool Lifeguard Course



Another 12 candidates passed their NPLQ RLSS Pool Lifeguard Award


12 candidates attended the five day intensive NPLQ course at BHLive Active Littledown Leisure Centre in Bournemouth organsied by First Class First Aid and Lifesaving this week, and taught by John from Aquatic Leisure.


At the end of the week after completing their 36 hours training all the candidates passed their practical assessments and written exam, which is a great result for them as they can now start their carers as lifeguards working in the leisure industry.


Its also nice for me to see as their trainer, its a long week but when you see the results and smiles on their faces at the end of the week you know it was worth it.


To attend this course candidates have to meet the following requirements;

  • Be 16 years of age

  • Be able to jump and dive into deep water

  • Swim 50 meters without pause on both their front and back

  • Be able to tread water for 30 seconds

  • Be able to swim underwater and surface dive to at lest 1.5 metres

  • Be able to climb out of the pool unaided without using the steps

  • Be water competant and be a medium to strong swimmer

  • be able to swim 50 metres in 60 seconds


The course is made up of three sections and each section has three elements;

  • Section One - The Lifeguard, Swimming Pool and Supervision

  • Section Two - Intervention, Rescue and Emergency Action Plan

  • Section Three - Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid

I can arrange for a course to be run at your centre for your staff or as an external course which can be useful for staff recruitment and for bringing income into your centre.


Also available to run assessments on ongoing competancy training
