Group / In-Service Training Courses

Once Pool Lifeguards and Swim Teachers have completed their formal qualifications, it is vital that they maintain their skills and knowledge. Undertaking ongoing in-service / professional development training at your aquatic facility is the perfect way to ensure that you and your team are able to provide the highest level of  service during supervision and swimming lesson activities as well as during emergency situations.

In-service Pool Lifeguard and Swim Teacher training has been designed specifically to support members of the Victorian aquatic industry to maintain their skills and knowledge and is consistent with the requirements of the GSPO.
