The 2021 Covid Lockdowns created immense pressure on our industry, with a large volume of Pool Lifeguards needing to renew their annual updates once pools opened in October 2021.
This has resulted in an unusually large volume of candidates needing to renew their licence in our peak period of September to December again this year.
Royal Life Saving NSW have increased the number of Pool Lifeguard Courses to accommodate this demand and currently have spaces available throughout NSW. Candidates are encouraged to forward plan their updates and consider booking in early to avoid missing out on a course before their licence expires and prevent them from working.
Existing lifeguards who enrol into a pool lifeguard update course must hold a current First Aid Certificate as a prerequisite. Existing RLSNSW Lifeguards are eligible for a $40.00 discount on First Aid training with Royal Life Saving NSW.
New Pool Lifeguards who book both a Pool Lifeguard course and a First Aid training course with Royal Life Saving NSW are eligible for a discount on their First Aid course fee. The discount offers enrolment into the HLTAID011 - Provide First Aid at $90.00 instead of the RRP $130.00.
