This qualification is the the leader in the world for Beach lifeguard, hence the intensive long days.

Final payment:

  • Then the surf club must transfer the payment to me on the 02/03/2017
  • This course is hugely subidesed by your club and would normally cost 370.00 per person. To do this however, the course must be full so if you choose not to do it, let the club know asap

Finnally:

This course is very intensive however the RNLI will only except this award. Thats what makes it so strong for gaining work. Its is the most intensive course in Ireland but it will allow you the knowledge that you are a strong lifeguard.

The RNLI and several local councils have their applications for this summer out already with closing dates before mid feb so start applying now and state you are booked onto a course with Atlantic coast lifeguards.

Interviews are generrally in early April.
