A Lifesaving Society Program
National Lifeguard education is designed to develop a sound understanding of lifeguarding principles, good judgement and a mature and responsible attitude toward the role of a lifeguard. The course develops the basic lifeguarding skills, principles and decision-making processes that will assist the lifeguard to evaluate and adapt to different aquatic settings and emergencies – and will include the Physical Standards listed on our website.
