Welcome to Surf Education
Surf Life Saving New Zealand's education site is in three
sections they are:
School Education - you will find
information on our fantastic education programmes for schools. This
includes Surf to School and Beach Education. Surf to School is our
classroom programme where our lifeguards come to you! Beach
Education is our full day programme taught at the beach.
Public Education - You can find some
really useful information here about how to stay safe at the beach.
This includes information on rips and tips on surf safety as well
as staying safe in the sun.
Member Education - A wide range of educational
opportunities and pathways are available to members. After
completing the Surf Lifeguard Award, members may choose to take
courses in driving IRBs or becoming a Patrol Captain. Over time
members can work their way towards achieving the top lifeguard
qualification: The Advanced Lifeguard Award.
