Canterbury Intermediate Lifeguard School

event overview


Intermediate Lifeguard School is designed to provide junior lifeguards with the skills, development, knowledge and further understanding to develop as a lifeguard. The school is a dynamic combination of theory and practical based sessions to enhance the candidate's learning through a variety of situations. Intermediate Lifeguard School is delivered via a two-day school and is a great opportunity for junior lifeguards to become more confident and capable lifeguards.

The target audience for this course is lifeguards who have been patrolling for 1-2 seasons and are ready to further develop their lifeguarding skills.

This event will return to Taylors Mistake SLSC for a jam packed weekend of action!
