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.

Open Water training endorsements

As a Survive and Save Instructor, you are qualified to conduct the POOL based activities. However, much of the excitement around the new programme lies in its open (still) water and beach components. Not offering these is depriving your candidates of a great deal of fun and experience.

To train and assess pupils you are expected to have one of three qualifications:

Trainer/Assessor (Beach)
Trainer/Assessor (Lifesaving) with T/A(Open Water) endorsement
Survive and Save Instructor with Open Water Orientation endorsement

If you are a Trainer/Assessor (Lifesaving) and DO NOT have the T/A(Open Water) endorsement (often referred to as SPLS4) then it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you complete this before DECEMBER 2012. This opens up more opportunities to you to train and assess other open water awards than just the ‘heritage’ Bronze and Silver Crosses. PLEASE LET THE BLC KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND THIS COURSE – DEPENDING ON NUMBERS WE WILL BE RUNNING IT AT ONE OR OTHER OR BOTH OF THE OPEN WATER WEEKENDS.

If you are a Survive and Save Instructor and would like to take part in Open Water (both still and beach) training then you need to have attended the RLSS UK Open Water Orientation course. PLEASE LET THE BLC KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND THIS COURSE – DEPENDING ON NUMBERS WE WILL BE RUNNING IT AT ONE OR OTHER OR BOTH OF THE OPEN WATER WEEKENDS.
