Overview

This is the ultimate combined course, which allows you to work as a surf instructor as well a beach lifeguard.

If you wish to work as a Surf Instructor you will require two qualifications to do so. The ISA Surf Instructor award along with a valid lifeguard award. The SLSGB Surf Lifeguard award is the most respected and recognised qualifications on the market. This is your one stop shop to gaining both.

What to Expect

Candidates must be over 16 years of age, physically fit and able to swim 400 metres in under 7:30 minutes (first 200 meters under 3:30) along with a 200 meter beach run in under 40 seconds.

The SLSGB Surf Lifeguard award allows you to work as a surf instructor as well as a beach lifeguard. If you only wish to work as a surf instructor then you can take the shorter combined course including the ‘Surf Coach Safety and Rescue Award’, which also has no timed swim.

Candidates that choose to do the combined course receive are able to fulfil the required 20 surf coach shaddowing hours at a Ticket to Ride Surf School.

Your ISA course is valid for a year, after which you must pay your annual membership to ISA to stay a valid member. You must take a short refresher course every two years to hold a valid lifeguard award.

This is one of the most respected combination of qualifications and will allow you to work all around the world.

You simply pay your ISA membership fee every year, directly to the ISA via their website. If you forget to do this, then you may need to take the course again (about £300 for ISA course only).

After you pass, the qualification is valid for 2-years. After this you will need to take a 'Refresher' course every 12-months. This is shorter & cheaper than the full award. If you don't take your refresher course in time then you will need to retake the full SLSGB course.

After you take your ISA Level 1 training course, you're required to gain 20 hours surf coach shaddowing experience at a surf school (this is equal to around 10 surf lessons). This is unpaid shaddowing experience where you learn from experienced instructors carrying out lessons for paying guests, afterwards you fill in all the paperwork with your instructor and send it off to ISA to gain your full membership. You can do this at any surf school, we always try to accommodate at our Ticket to Ride Surf School in Perranporth, Cornwall. Just as the team and we can schedule this in.

You will need to bring your own surf equipment: surfboard, wetsuit, boots etc if it's cold! Also bring some lunch or cash, waterbottle, suncream if required, a towel, warm change of clothes, as well as pen and paper. All course learning material will be provided on arrival.
