Lifeguarding Courses & Programs: We Train
Canada’s National Lifeguards
National Lifeguard is the professional standard for lifeguard training in Canada. National Lifeguards are trained by the Lifesaving Society, Canada’s lifeguarding experts, to work at pools, waterfronts, waterparks, and surf environments across the country. They keep people safe through accident prevention, public education, and rescue response. Most importantly, National Lifeguards save lives.
Becoming a National Lifeguard is a rewarding but challenging journey that builds leadership and personal skills employers are looking for. Knowledge and skills learned in each course will carry over into the next to help you succeed. Lifesaving courses like Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross prepare you with water rescue skills, while Standard First Aid and CPR-C trains you to provide lifesaving measures to victims.
There are four streams of National Lifeguard: Pool, Waterfront, Waterpark, and Surf. These streams ensure National Lifeguards from across Canada are prepared to lifeguard in their unique work environments.
National Lifeguards are always in training and take recertification courses to keep their skills, knowledge and fitness sharp.
