Lifeguard Qualification Courses
Monday, August 19, 2019 - Saturday, August 24, 2019
There are numerous benefits to lifeguarding; first and foremost the valuable life skills that you will learn such as first aid, CPR, and rescue techniques. You will also benefit from personal gains such as maintaining or improving on fitness levels, as you are encouraged to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle. The mental benefits for completing a lifeguarding course include the increased ability to cope well under pressure, work well within a team and you will gain confidence in your own abilities.
