01 Mar SLSGB Surf Coach Safety and Rescue Award
What is this course?
This award is specifically designed for surf coaches who need to have a lifesaving qualification. It validates ISA, ASI and WSA qualifications as well as a being pre-requsite for delivering activities such as SUP, Bodyboarding and Coasteering.
This award sets out to establish a standard that creates a level of competence in Life Saving that meets the requirements of the ocean based coach which enables more location and job specific training and assessment.
The main difference between this award and the NVBLQ (National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification) is that it cannot be used to apply for beach lifeguard positions and there is no timed pool swim and the 200m run must be completed in less than 1 minute.
