SWIM COACH RESCUER AND RISK ASSESSMENT CPD - £195


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.

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. Nationally recognised qualification with Surf Lifesaving Great Britain the SLSGB tube rescuer -  This 6 hour practical course 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.
