NPLQ

Being a lifeguard offers a fantastic foundation to a career in the leisure industry.

 

Become a qualified swimming pool lifeguard

The RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) is the most awarded lifeguard qualification in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Combining theoretical work and practical training, you will become a fully accredited pool lifeguard, learning key life skills – first aid, CPR and rescue techniques and gain an internationally recognised lifeguard qualification. The NPLQ course duration is 37.5 hours training + up to 3 hours assessment with an integrated element - AED training.

The RLSS UK NPLQ is not just a qualification, it can be a stepping-stone into a career within the leisure industry.   As a lifeguard you will be able to provide an amazing service to the public. You will, without doubt make people feel confident, happier and safer in the water by being on poolside.

Not only will you have to have a basic level of fitness to become a lifeguard, but you’ll be encouraged to stay fit and get fitter.
