Additional Benefits

NPLQ (National Pool Lifeguard Qualification) - Achieving a Bronze Medallion award with us - will reduce the amount of time needed to train for an NPLQ award by 7 hours.  Lots of Lifesavers work towards an NPLQ award as their first job as a pool Lifeguard.

UCAS points - completing the NPLQ qualification (from May 2024) will contribute 8 UCAS Tariff points which helps towards University placements. 

Whilst we don't offer the NPLQ course ourselves - the Bronze Medallion award servers as a perfect foundation to the NPLQ course and will help candidates pass the course should they decide to pursue that qualification.
