Thursday, 1 October 2015

Does jumping out of a helicopter and navigating rugged rocks sound like your cup of tea?

Do you want to hone your already advanced skills to gain the top honour for lifeguarding in New Zealand?

Well, applications for the 2015/16 season National Lifeguard School are now open!

The National Lifeguard School is something that lifeguards aspire to. They combine dynamic theory sessions with a number of intensive practical and scenario based activities extending participants both physically and mentally - honing already advanced skills.

If you successfully complete a National Lifeguard School with all the required prerequisites you will be awarded your Advanced Lifeguard Award - the highest award for surf lifeguards in New Zealand.

Two schools will be held this season:

December 11-13, 2015: Fitzroy, New Plymouth
February 19-21, 2016: Whiritoa, Coromandel
