Lifeguard Programs

The National Lifeguard® (NL) award builds on the skills, knowledge and values that the Lifesaving Society teaches in its pre-Bronze and Bronze Medal awards to develop the practical skills and knowledge required by lifeguards.

Recognized as the standard measure of lifeguard performance in Canada, NL education is designed to develop a sound understanding of lifeguarding principles, good judgment, and a mature and responsible attitude toward the role of the lifeguard.
