Lifeguarding techniques often differ between countries and organisations. That doesn’t mean that Lifeguards from overseas can’t work within Australia. It does however mean that they may need to go through a process to have their training recognised. Overseas Lifeguards should be aware that not all overseas qualifications are recognised.

It’s best that overseas Lifeguards contact Royal Life Saving in the State or Territory they intend to work for more information on how to obtain a RLSSA Pool Lifeguard Award or License.
