Due to COVID-19, our schedule of course delivery will be prone to uncertainties. We are working hard and getting in touch with the course providers and the venue providers to ensure you can engage the with the amazing part of lifesaving with the minimal hiccups during this challenging times.
We are currently planning for the following qualifications (but please message us if there's a course you'd like to do that's not listed)
- National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ)
- Emergency First Aid at Work/First Aid at Work (EFAW/FAW)
- Lifesaving Instructor
- more courses can be organised on request such as open water and beach lifeguard qualifications.
A 5-day NPLQ may be available at the end Term 2, dependent on the level of the public health risk and the demand.

Hi everyone, as you may have already noticed that policies on avoiding close contact between people from our Uni and government are still implemented to fight against the pandemic. For the good of our community, most courses are anticipated to take place after Term 1, 2020 due to various safety concerns and related restrictions.
