The course is being run for Lifeguards working within the Leisure Industry who wish to become Irish Water Safety, In-House,  Pool  Lifeguard Course Providers.  Upon Course completion it is expected that the applicants will be able to run IWS National Pool Lifeguard and National Pool Lifeguard Revalidation Courses for their own staff, in their own pools.


It means that existing staff members who are not already Pool Lifeguards can be trained up to an International Pool lifeguard Standard.  New staff members can be employed and an In-House Lifeguard Course can be run by the In House Provider for them.  CPD and Revalidation courses for staff members can also be run by the In-House Pool Lifeguard Providers


Please Note: Irish Water Safety Examiners must be called upon to examine on all these courses.


We expect the price of this In-House Pool Lifeguard Provider Course to cost approximately €120. (Ovenight stay where necessary will cost extra)
