RLSS UK National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers and Coaches


The National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers and Coaches is a supervision and rescue qualification for teachers working on the poolside or in the water during programmed activities, such as a swimming lesson. It is suitable for teachers working in a wide range of swimming pools, including pools where the water is deeper than the teacher's standing depth. It is a 16-hour course for new candidates or an 8-hour course for those renewing their qualification. Both include a 2-hour independent assessment.


The training course covers:

  • The teacher, swimming pool and class management

  • Intervention, rescue and emergency action

  • CPR and first aid

Emergency first aid at work and AED qualifications may be added on to the course programme.

This course is usually provided for a group of employees at your location.
