Looking to build on your core first aid and lifesaving skills in a diving environment?
The Lifesaver Award assesses students’ lifesaving
proficiency and diver rescue skills within a pool or
sheltered water environment. The course also allows for
additional or refresher training as required.
Holders of the Lifesaver Award will have demonstrated their lifesaving proficiency in diving and non-diving situations.
This award is open to anyone over the age of 14 and an Ocean Diver with North Glos BSAC.
What you’ll be assessed on
The Lifesaver Award is obtained by passing an examination which comprises of two sections – a dry theoretical and practical test and a wet practical test:
• Lifesaver theory covers the human body, diver rescue and basic life support.
• Lifesaver in-water skills includes towing and throwing
Additional training prior to the examination may be necessary and this can be delivered by North Glos.
