This course is recognized as the minimum standard for a qualified lifesaver. It aims to develop the level of judgment, technique and physical ability required to safely carry out water rescues and involves practical applications, assessments of CPR on mannequins, as well as a theory exam. The course suits aspiring/current lifeguards, police officers, firefighters or any person involved in rescues (i.e the SES). The annual HLTAID001CPR certification is also updated during the Perform Basic Water Rescues course.
The course includes a fitness test – a timed “swim” and a “tow”. A basic level of fitness is required for the swim and tow, we recommend you practice this aspect of the course beforehand. Please contact us to find out further details.
