Event description

Description

There has been a growth in open water swimming and triathlon events etc. and lifeguards are needed to support these events. I am starting to collect names for interested individuals or groups that wish to complete this relatively new qualification, serving the North West and North Wales area.

The Open Water Lifeguard qualification enables candidates with no previous lifeguard experience to become qualified. By attaining this qualification candidates will have been assessed as competent to provide supervision and rescue cover for planned, organised and risk-assessed activities in open water (still, non-tidal).

The Open Water Lifeguard Qualification delivered over three days, is valid is 2 years and is independently assessed. The candidate manual and trainer resources help the Trainer Assessor deliver through the three sections:

Section 1
The Open Water Lifeguard, environment, hazards and supervision

Section 2
Responding to an emergency and taking action

Section 3
CPR and First Aid.

RTA will also be offering one day conversion courses for exisiting National Pool Lifeguard Award (NPLQ) holders going this route is obviously quicker but you must have the current NPLQ Award.
