SWIM COACH RESCUER & RISK ASSESSMENT

Devon

SWIM COACH RESCUER AND RISK ASSESSMENT CPD - £185


This specifically designed course is aimed at coaches looking to further their knowledge of the sea environment, risk assessment, and how to rescue a swimmer in trouble.

A great bolt on qualification, filled with useful information,  perfect for all open water swim coaches.


Pre-requisites :

To do the course you will need to be a current member of SLSGB: follow the link to create or renew your SLSGB membership (+ £25):

https://www.slsgb.org.uk/support-us/membership/

The course is split into two parts:


1. Theory over Zoom - 2x2hr session:  

2 hours covering an introduction to the beach/ocean environment, gaining knowledge and awareness of weather, tides, swell, rip currents, wildlife and more...

2 hour session looks into hazard awareness, analytical risk assessments, their use and how to complete them.

On the practical  day of the tube rescuer we put into practice the theory learnt from the zoom meetings. 


2. SLSGB Tube rescuer: this 6 hour practical course is a nationally recognised qualification with Surf Lifesaving 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 tube rescuer.

It will give increased confidence that should a situation arise during a session, you will be better equipped to deal with someone in trouble in the water as well as exploring other available safety and rescue equipment for your coached swim session.

The course also includes access to an online learning platform to prepare your course.
