• If you are a Lifesaving Instruction or an Aquatic Manager this concerns you! There has been a Bronze Medal Awards update at the national level and as a Lifesaving Instructor or an Aquatic Manager you need to attend to a compulsory webinar in order to get up to date with the program.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • As part of the new Leadership program, please note that the Lifesaving Instructor and First Aid Instructor* recertification will now only take place in person. The credit-based recertification system will therefore not be applicable starting January 1st, 2019.
  • The Leadership Program Guide is now available (edition 2019) on the website. You can consult it right now.
