The See-en-Sand lifesaving selection course has gained popularity over the past few years with many students attending it for reasons other than solely becoming a qualified lifeguard. While this course is an excellent experience for students to bolster their confidence and personal development, being selected as a lifeguard carries an extreme public responsibility. Therefore, our programme is directed at young and energetic students who understand and accept responsibility for their own conduct as well as the public. Students must be 16 years of age or older when serving as a lifeguard.
If you can remain calm under pressure, have a strong sense of community service, have good communication skills, and enjoy the outdoors, then you have some of the necessary qualities to become a successful lifeguard.
Due to the nature of the course candidates are required to have strong swimming skills, moderate to high level of personal fitness with good self and group discipline. If you are an independent thinker and a motivated self-starter, then our lifesaving course is ideal for you!
Qualified lifeguards may be required to perform lifesaving duty over the December and April school holiday period at one of our allocated beaches.
