AquaMobile Swim School provides Lifesaving Society courses and Leadership Courses with at home private swim lessons for those seeking lifeguard training and to learn lifesaving skills through the Lifesaving Society. The Lifesaving Society’s lifesaving courses begin with Swim Patrol lessons, followed by Bronze Star, Bronze Medallion and finally Bronze Cross in order to qualify for lifeguard training and swim instructor training and certification.
The final step to becoming a lifeguard, the National Lifeguard Service (NLS) Award, is available through AquaMobile, however few home pools meet the size requirements set out by the Lifesaving Society to complete the NLS course.
The Canadian Swim Patrol program is the on-ramp to lifeguarding for 8-12-year-olds who are ready to go beyond regular swim lessons. Swim Patrol has 3 levels – Rookie, Ranger & Star. Content is organized in 3 groups – Water Proficiency, First Aid, and Rescue. Swim Patrol develops swimming strength and efficiency with emphasis on Water Smart® behaviour. Skill drills enhance capability in the water, good physical conditioning and lifesaving judgment.
AquaMobile Swim School provides at home private swim lessons or small group swim lessons for the Lifesaving Society’s Rookie, Ranger & Star Patrol Level to help students learn at a quicker pace and retain more information.
Bronze Star training provides excellent preparation for success in Bronze Medallion. With AquaMobile private swim lessons for Bronze Star, participants develop problem-solving and decision-making skills individually and in partners. Candidates will also learn CPR and develop the lifesaving skills needed to be their own lifeguard.
The Lifesaving Society’s Bronze Medallion award teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water-rescue education – judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness. The Bronze Medallion Course involves learning tows and carries, and defence methods and releases in preparation for challenging rescues involving conscious and unconscious victims. Bronze Medallion private swim lessons also teach lifesavers to develop stroke efficiency and endurance in a timed swim.
AquaMobile Swim School offers the Bronze Medallion Course for participants 13 years and older, or those with Bronze Star. The duration of the program with AquaMobile depends on the number of participants of the swim lessons.
The Lifesaving Society’s Bronze Cross award is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training including an introduction to safe supervision in aquatic facilities. Bronze Cross is a prerequisite for all advanced lifeguard training programs including National Lifeguard Service and Instructor certification.
AquaMobile teaches Bronze Cross to those with prerequisites of Bronze Medallion Award and Emergency First Aid certification (need not be current) and a minimum of 14 years of age. Bronze Cross private swim lessons with AquaMobile can be taught one-on-one or in small groups and the duration of the program will depend on the number of participants.
These Lifesaving Society certified leadership swim programs allow the student to learn the required skills for lifeguard training and swim instructor training in an efficient and focused manner since they are taught in smaller group setting with Lifesaving Society certified Instructors and Examiners.
With AquaMobile Swim School, participants can books lessons at times convenient for them. AquaMobile’s flexible scheduling means that participants can complete the lifeguarding training at a pace that is spread out over a number of weeks, or in a condensed crash course format. AquaMobile’s private swim lessons for NLS courses are taught by experienced AquaMobile swim instructors, who provide individual first aid and swim instruction in a smaller class environment, unlike training through city pools where 20 swimmers or more are enrolled in the leadership program, leaving little time for each participant to receive much attention for this rigorous course.
Lifeguard training and swim instructor training with the Lifesaving Society program are currently only available to our Canadian customers.
Pricing for Leadership courses depends on the number of participants.
