Description:
The Lifesaving Society’s (NL) certification builds on the fundamental skills taught in the Bronze Medallion and Cross courses. This program develops a sound understanding of lifeguarding principles, builds physical endurance in the water and teaches the mature judgment needed to be a successful lifeguard.
Participants will learn how to safely carry and remove distressed swimmers from the water, treat individuals in major first aid situations, providing follow up care for the aquatic environment.
This course has 40 hours of instructional time. The time will be shared between the class room and the swimming pool. 100% attendance is required. Homework assignments may be given out during the 40 hour instructional time.
Candidates should bring paper, pen, water bottle, snacks, lunch/dinner, extra towels, swimsuit, deck appropriate footwear and goggles. Those with long hair should bring hair elastics or wear a swim cap.
Completion of this course is based on the instructors evaluation and completing all Alberta Lifesaving Societies Standards.
