Beach Lifeguard Courses

Royal Life Saving Society National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification

This course is open to anyone looking to gain an internationally recognised beach lifeguard qualification in the UK. This is an essential requirement for anyone looking to work as a surf instructor or work as a beach lifeguard. The full course is suitable for those new to lifeguarding and is run over 5 days including a final assessment. There is also the option of a shorter course for existing beach lifeguards looking to requalify.

COST: £285
DURATION: 5 DAYS

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.

All courses can be combined with our Surfing England/I.S.A. Level Instructor course held over 2 days on the weekend after each of these courses. More information here. We offer a discount rate of £515 for booking the Beach Lifeguard course and Surf Instructor course together.

''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!''
