Irish Water Safety Training course

26 August, 2014

Irish Water Safety will be running a course for In-House Pool Lifeguard Providers in Dublin (or Athlone depending on geographical spread of applicants)  on the weekend of 8th and 9th of November 2014.

Applicants from the Leisure Industry must be holders of a valid IWS National Pool Lifeguard Award or equivalent.

When qualified as "In-House National Pool Lifeguard Providers"  the applicants will be entitled to run the IWS National Pool Lifeguard and Lifeguard Revalidation Courses for their own staff in their own pools

This means that any existing staff members who are not Pool Lifeguards can be trained up to an International Pool lifeguard Standard and then examined "when ready". New staff members can be employed and an "In-House" Course can be provided for them by the In House Trainer.

CPD and Revalidation courses for staff members can also be run by the In-House Pool Lifeguard Providers


Irish Water Safety Examiners must be called upon to examine on these courses.


We expect the price of this In-House Pool Lifeguard Provider Course to be between €80  and €100 plus cost of overnight stay where necessary. 

This will cover the Course itself, Latest copy of IWS Pool Lifeguard Manual and the Irish Water Safety, National Pool Lifeguard, Course Resource Disc.
