Rookie lifeguard

Our Rookie Lifeguard course is ideal for children aged 8 and over.

This programme develops key lifesaving skills to help each student not only save themselves in the water, but also know what to do if others get into difficulty.

The Rookie Lifeguard award includes survival, rescue and sport skills, as well as basic life support and water safety elements, making them a fun all-round life-saving beginner course.
