The course, at Shoeburyness Leisure Centre runs from Monday 18th February until Friday 22nd February and leads to the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ).

This is a vital requirement for anyone keen to work in the leisure industry. Those joining the 40-hour course at the Centre in Delaware Road, Shoeburyness, must be 16 or over, physically fit, able to swim to a good level and able to reach the bottom of the deepest part of a swimming pool.

At the end of their week-long training, candidates will be independently assessed on their knowledge of CPR, first aid, hazards and risks, role of a Lifeguard, accident prevention, water- based rescue skills, their fitness and teamwork abilities.

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Executive Councillor for Culture and Tourism, Councillor Derek Jarvis said: “This very thorough course is an excellent way for people gain crucial life-saving skills while also boosting their job chances. It leads to a nationally recognised qualification. “A good Lifeguard is a person, who cares about people, wants to help others, can work on their own or within a team and is ready to take responsibility for the safety of others.
