About the event
The Beach Lifeguard course is designed to teach you the knowledge and skills you need to supervise the beach and act appropriately in the event of an emergency. Physical fitness is essential when following this course. An important part of the exam is therefore a swim test in which you have to swim 400 meters within 8 minutes.
The entire Beach Lifeguard course is practical; theory is translated directly into practical assignments wherever possible. This way, you learn to apply your new knowledge immediately. Topics covered during the course include: risk assessment, currents and tides, use of aids, weather forecasting, rescue procedures, cooperation with other emergency services, preventive action, signals, first aid, etc.
The renewal course normally lasts 2 days, followed by a day of examinations. all this in accordance with the current Corona measures. Because of the Corona measures, the theory is given online. The price of the training, including registration, exam and certificate is 295,00 euro(p.p.). After registration, you will receive the data for the applicable Corona measures that we take into account during the course.
