The RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) is the most awarded lifeguard qualification in the United Kingdom and Ireland and is a recruitment requirement for a number of jobs within the leisure industry from Pool Lifeguard to Centre Manager. The qualification is also recognised internationally so you can use it at a number of places abroad if you are thinking of working in summer camps.

The NPLQ course duration is 36 hours and is split over 3 units; The course comprises of physical training and theoretical classroom work, followed by a practical in-water and out-of-water assessment on pool rescue, first aid, CPR and lifesaving skills.

  • First and foremost you are providing an Amazing public service. You will without doubt make people fell confident, happier  and safer just by being on the poolside and you could potentially save a life.

  • Being a lifeguard offers a fantastic Foundation to a career in the leisure industry. Many senior managers began lifeguarding at there local pools.

  • The opportunity to get fit. Not only will you have the basic level of fitness to become lifeguard but you will be encouraged to stay fit and get fitter. Many pools will give their lifeguards discounted or even free memberships.

  • You get to work with a team of  likeminded people, so there's plenty of opportunity to increase your social circle!
