As a pool lifeguard your job is to ensure the safety of others, to prevent accidents from occurring and to save lives.

Pool Lifeguard Course 

Our new Pool Lifeguard course has been designed to remove as many barriers to enrolment as possible, to further encourage new Lifeguards to join the Industry. 

Most importantly, the new Pool Lifeguard course will be inclusive of the HLTAID011 - Provide First Aid unit, and candidates will no longer need to seek this out prior to the course.
