Lifeguarding techniques often differ between countries and organisations. That doesn’t mean that Lifeguards from overseas can’t work in Australia. It does however mean that they may need to go through a process to have their training recognised.
Requirements to work in Australia as a Pool Lifeguard are centres around holding and maintaining a Pool Lifeguard Skillset, which is part of the Australian Qualifications Framework.
Overseas certificate may be recognised as a pathway to expedite the attainment of this skillset, but will likely result in further training and assessment, and/or course attendance.
Enquiries are to be made to firstname.lastname@example.org - Upon submission, please supply all current qualifications/documents.
Please note: Royal Life Saving Society NSW is not a CRICOS Provider, therefore, we are unable to provide National Training to overseas students holding a Student Visa.
