More Information

Our training centre is based at Croyde beach in North Devon and with two other beaches nearby, it is the perfect location to offer a range of surf conditions to train in. The course is run by a team of experienced watermen and qualified RLSS trainers, all of who are qualified lifeguards and surf instructors working on the beach and in the sea every day.

The training on the course requires you to complete both practical and theory modules. You will spend time in the sea as well as completing classroom based theory sessions. The course cost includes the comprehensive RLSS Beach Lifeguard Qualification manual providing an essential resource for all lifeguards. You will be required to pass all modules to gain your qualification. All candidates on the course will be assessed on the final day by an RLSS assessor, who will be looking for good knowledge and understanding in the following areas:

– Lifeguard Theory
– CPR
– First Aid
– Open water & rescue skills
– Spinal management

There is also a swimming assessment in a 25 metre pool where candidates are required to complete a 400m swim in under 8 minutes.

''I've just completed a week of intensive training with Surf South West for my beach lifeguard qualification. Make no mistake, this course is physically demanding but very enjoyable. The approach of all the staff at Surf South West created a friendly, relaxed environment for a good learning experience course and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course to anyone considering completing it. Thank you Surf South West!''
