Do you want to become a lifeguard?
Abbeycroft Leisure regularly runs National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) courses and our Centres are approved by Institute of Qualified Lifeguards.
The NPLQ course aims to qualify the candidates to become Pool Lifeguards. The exam is on the final day of the course. If any candidates are not ready for the examination after the Course is completed due to their personal ability, the Course Tutor will give individual advice. If any candidate fails, they can apply for another exam at an extra cost of £30.00 (there has to be a minimum number of four candidates).
The RLSS set out the following requirements for course members:
- Candidates should be fit and healthy and aged 16 on the first day of the course.
- Completely confident in deep water.
- Able to swim 50m in one minute or under.
- Able to swim 100m on their front and back and be efficient in Breaststroke.
