Suspended courses: what to do?
Following to the closure of aquatic centres and Lifesaving courses’ winter session being suspended, many questions and concerns have been brought to our attention. Here is the Lifesaving Society’s guideline.
Getting ready for a National Lifeguard recertification
Be prepared before taking your National Lifeguard recertification! It is an exam in which your physical fitness, lifesaving abilities, knowledge and judgment are evaluated. For example, you can be asked to transfer a spinal-injured victim onto a spinal board. Being ready make it possible to reduce the recertification length and minimize the risk of failure.
