Overview

The SLSGB Surf Lifeguard Award is internationally recognised and is one the most comprehensive lifeguard courses in the world.

This course is not for the faint hearted.  The training involves running, swimming, rescuing and dragging casualties through the surf zone and up the beach using rescue boards and rescue tubes. Course modules include amongst others, lifeguard and first aid theory, CPR and spinal management.

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.

This course is ideal for individuals that want to keep their options open as the qualification allows you to work as a surf instructor, but also as a beach lifeguard. If you only wish to work as a surf instructor, then you can take the shorter ‘Surf Coach Safety and Rescue Award’ that also has no timed swim.

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

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.

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.
