Check out my latest film with the RNLI it could save your life! If you get into trouble in cold water all you need to do is #FloatToLive #RespectTheWater - learn how to overcome cold water shock.

The New Survive and Save Programme

Most of you will have all seen the news in the latest copy of Lifesaver Magazine, but we wanted to remind those of you who are Trainer/Assessors of the next important step that YOU need to take.

FIRST – You need to get a copy of the New Lifesaving Manual for Instructors

The new manual is the comprehensive resource for Lifesaving trainers. If you choose to purchase your own manual (which was available from 1st August 2011), you can order by visiting their site (https://www.lifesaversdirect.co.uk/products/pb3000/) or telephone the order hotline on 0844 824 3440

SECOND – You need to complete the online multiple choice update assessment.

There are two routes to choose from. Option 1 is for those existing TAs who wish to just carry on training and assessing. Option 2 allows you to run courses in your club for future Lifesaving Instructors.

We will probably be running an update evening for the Branch where questions can be asked and experiences shared around the new awards and the extra skills that candidates need to demonstrate. Further details will be posted on the website soon.
