LifeSaving Course

 

Be Someone’s Hero, Save Lives!

What could be more fulfilling than saving someone’s life? Nothing is scarier than drowning or feeling helpless when someone needs saving.

There are many drowning cases each day, and you could make a big difference in guarding lives by taking our Life Saving Course! Our Life Saving Course provides a systematic way to learn lifeguarding according to Singapore Life Saving Society criteria, whose mission is to educate and pass on knowledge of aquatic life-saving abilities to as many people as possible.

Having the knowledge and ability to save lives just means that you’re educated and aware of how to perform aquatic rescue. To become a certified lifeguard, you will need to go through Lifesaving 1, 2, and 3; after that, Bronze Medallion and CPR Certification courses. You will be considered a certified lifeguard upon completion of Bronze Medallion. Should you wish to pursue an even higher level, you may consider Bronze Cross, Award with Merit, and/or Lifesaving Teacher.

The basic Life Saving Courses are extremely helpful to those that want to feel a little safer while swimming, and also for those who wish to be certified lifeguards and go on a mission of guarding and saving lives. Whichever the case is for you, the following short descriptions explain the basics of what each of the courses offer:
