Do you have what it takes to be Lifeguard?

April 29 2019

We are running a 5 day National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (Generation 9) course at the Hudson Leisure Centre on Friday the 19th July.

During this 5 day course candidates will learn a wide range of life saving techniques, including First aid and how to use an AED.

Due to the physically demanding nature of this course all candidates will have to complete a pre requisite competency test on the first evening, which involves:

  • jump/dive into deep water
  • swim 100 meters on front and back and then tread water for 30 seconds in deep water
  • swim 50 meters in no more than 60 seconds
  • surface dive to the floor of the pool
  • climb out, unaided, without using the ladders/steps and where the pool design permits

The cost of this course is £250 and payment will be taken on booking.

If you would like to apply for this course or for more information please contact Caroline Ormiston on 01733 942862 or email caroline.ormiston@freedom-leisure.co.uk
