The SLSGB Beach Lifeguard Award is a national qualification for the beach lifeguard covering; fitness, practical lifeguarding skills and knowledge, rescue techniques, life support and first aid.

The SLSGB qualification is accredited by the RNLI and many UK council lifeguard services and recognised internationally. However, please note that completion of this course does not guarantee employment as a lifeguard.

We have a range of people taking lifeguard courses with us from the ages of 16 and up.

Not everyone who takes a course wants to be a lifeguard and there is no commitment to become one. It is however a great way of improving fitness, first aid and waterwork skills.

We can guarantee you will take away a whole range of new skills and knowledge from the week.

Spaces on the course are limited and will be allocated on a first- come, first- serve basis.
