This course set provides the skills to supervise the safety of participants in aquatic recreation facilities and manage water-based rescues and emergencies for students who already hold a current HLTAID011 Provide First Aid. The primary objective of a Pool Lifeguard at an aquatic location is to supervise patrons within the aquatic environment and to assist in preventing drowning.
The course applies to individuals who may be required to provide a first aid response to a casualty in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings in line with first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies.
The following units will be included in your certificate:
There may be an additional on-the-job licensing requirement for pool lifeguards working in NSW. Please check with your employer if you are required to apply for a Pool Lifeguard Licence.
