Free Pool Lifeguard Training Opportunity

Wednesday, 31 October, 2018

Are you a resident of the Strathbogie Shire interested in becoming a lifeguard?

Strathbogie Shire Council, in conjunction with Life Saving Victoria (LSV), is offering free Pool Lifeguard training on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November.

The two day course will give participants the qualifications required to supervise swimming pool users, covering a number of areas including pool surveillance, scanning techniques, rescue skills, oxygen resuscitation and emergency care.

Participants must have current first aid certificate and must be 16 or turning 16 by the end of 2018 due to the physical requirements of the course.

There are a maximum of 16 places in the course, and Council will explore the option of running a second course if there is demand.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said this is a great development opportunity, particularly for young people in the region.

“We really encourage people to register for this training as it is a fantastic opportunity that will open up greater employment options,” Cr McClaren explained.

“We are also putting out expressions of interest for lifeguards at our local pools, so there will be employment opportunities in the shire this summer, which will be made available to those who complete the training.”

Each individual candidate will get access to a learning portal with their LSV certificates, along with E-learning progress and personal details.
