Pool Lifeguard Courses
Royal Life Saving’s pool lifeguard courses offer expert professional training, and covers the skills and knowledge of first aid, resuscitation, swimming and water safety.

Australian lifeguards are world-renown for their high levels of skill and knowledge in accident prevention and rescue response. Royal Life Saving was the first organisation in Australia to start training pool lifeguards specifically and we have been doing this for over 30 years.

Our courses provide expert professional training in using the latest techniques and technology and cover aquatic supervision, risk management, communication, rescue and emergency response techniques, first aid and advanced resuscitation, public relations, conflict management and incident investigation and reporting.

These are valuable skills in any work context and lifeguarding is a dynamic, in-demand profession that can open up work opportunities in a wide variety of national and international locations. There are also opportunities for career advancement such as supervisor, duty manager, facility manager, swim teacher and trainer/assessor.

Our experienced trainers will move between the theory and practical components of the course, using the latest equipment and a range of realistic and practical scenarios to help you consolidate your learning and ensure you are skilled and confident in applying newly learned strategies and techniques.

All Royal Life Saving training is delivered in line with COVID safe requirements. Participant and trainer safety remains our number one priority.
