Become a lifeguard
Pools on the Park run National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) courses throughout the year.
The RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification is the most awarded lifeguard qualification in the UK and Ireland; it is also internationally recognised and is a great starting point for anyone looking for a career in the leisure industry.
The NPLQ course is 36 hours long over 5 days with a practical assessment covering theory, pool rescue, first aid and CPR. All applicants must be 16 years or over on the last day of the course.
Over the summer Pools on the Park will be running the following courses:
27, 28, 29 July, 1 and 2 August
10, 11, 12, 15, and 16 August
24, 25, 26, 30 and 31 August
The course runs from 8.30am-6.00pm each day and 100% attendance is required in order to enter the assessment. Please note that this is a practical and oral assessment.
Before being able to book a course you must take a short swim test; 200m (6 lengths) in shorts and t-shirt in less than 5 minutes and demonstrating that you can get to the deepest part of the pool (3.6m).
The cost of the course is £258.
