BOARD RESCUER

Challaborough

This 6 hour practical course is a nationally recognised qualification with Surf Life Saving Great Britain and is valid for 2 years.

This award will establish a level of competence to allow an individual to provide supporting water safety as a rescue board paddler.


This course is aimed at coaches or swimmers already qualified as a "tube rescuer" (see our course" Swim coach rescuer and risk assessment") looking to further their skills by using a rescue board (or prone paddle board) within their sessions.


The course is covering:

-Rescue board checks and safety

-Use of rescue board (paddling techniques, surf considerations, ...)

-Rescuing a conscious casualty

-Rescuing an unconscious casualty

-Aftercare

-Equipment guidance


A great bolt on qualification, allowing you to be in the water with your swimmers, providing a good vantage point, mobility along with the swimmers, resting and briefing point, perfect if you feel restricted on the shore and a great rescue device!


This also includes access to our online learning platform to prepare your course.
