Swimmers are being urged to take the plunge and sign up to learn lifesaving skills with a nationally recognised training course.

Dudley Council is offering the course at Halesowen Leisure Centre and Crystal Leisure Centre, Stourbridge.

The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) is running the lifeguard courses which can pave the way for a new career or just equip people with essential skills.

People will receive a course manual and special tuition. Those who complete the course successfully will get an official lifeguard qualification and certificate.

The courses are open for people 16 and over who will be expected to take a pre-arranged swimming test.

The course costs £245 and spaces must be pre-booked with a deposit required to secure a place. The remaining balance is to be paid before the course starts.
