Intermediate Lifeguard School

This course is designed to provide extensive training, skill development and experience for lifeguards who have been patrolling for 1-3 seasons.

The Intermediate Lifeguard School is delivered via a two day camp where participants complete modules in surf life guarding techniques, team work, public image, emergency care, board rescue and rock/surf rescue.

This course is an excellent opportunity to become a more confident and capable lifeguard and learn from some of the most experienced and skilled lifeguard instructors in the region.

The Pre-Requisites to completing this course are:

- At least 15yrs of age

- SLSNZ member (Current on SLSNZ Database)

- 400 Metre swim in under 8 minutes

- First Aid Level 1

- 1 Full Season of patrolling experience

- Club Endorsement


Spaces on the course are limited and each club has an initial allocation, therefore clubs will be asked to prioritize applicants during the endorsement process. Further positions may be given subject to registrations.

The 2020 Intermediate Guard School will be held at Bethells Beach from 7th - 8th March.

Applications for this course are now closed. Keep an eye out for the release of the 2020/2021 course dates later this year.
