Open Water Lifeguard Course

This qualification has been specifically designed to equip open water lifeguards with the skills required to supervise and provide rescue cover for planned, organised and risk assessed activities in still or non-tidal water.
To be able to partake in an OWL course you must:
Be 16 years old or older at the time of the assessment
Be competent and confident in open water
Be able to submerge under the water confidently
Before the course candidates must be able to swim at least 400m in a pool/open water swimming continuously

The Open Water Lifeguard Qualification, delivered over three days, is valid for two years and is independently assessed. The candidate manual and trainer resources help the Open Water Lifeguard Trainer Assessor deliver through the three sections:

  • Section 1 – The Open Water Lifeguard, environment, hazards and supervision
  • Section 2 – Responding to an emergency and taking action
  • Section 3 – CPR and First Aid
The OWL enables candidates with no previous lifeguard experience to become qualified.

The cost of the course will be £250
