Lifeguarding courses will be taking place at Dudley Leisure Centre and Halesowen Leisure Centre during July and August 2019. The courses are suitable for over 16s. For further details call the centres or click here
Dudley Council is running two lifeguard courses at Dudley Leisure Centre and Halesowen Leisure Centre.
The Royal Life Saving Society lifeguard courses can pave the way for a new career or just equip people with essential skills.
The course will run from Monday 22 July - Friday 26 July at Dudley Leisure Centre, with an exam taking place on the Saturday. At Halesowen Leisure Centre, the course will take place from Monday 29 July - Friday 2 August.
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 before the course dates.
The courses costs £220 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.
For more information or to provisionally book a place call the leisure centres on 01384 812800.
