SURF COACH SAFETY & RESCUE
Five day SLSGB Beach Lifeguard Courses
TYF have been delivering beach lifeguard courses to intrepid adventures and outdoor professionals for over thirty years. Our classrooms are the wild playgrounds of the St. Davids peninsular which we use to create realistic first aid scenarios.
This award is applicable to those undertaking surf coaching and instruction activity and for surfboard hiring organisations. It aims to establish a minimum vocational standard that demonstrates a level of competence for the safety of participants under instruction during a coached surf activity session undertaken in primarily wading depth water and to establish the necessary skills and knowledge to provide basic rescue response and life support.
