RLSS UK Qualifications Level 3
National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification

The NPLQ is the ‘flagship’ qualification for becoming a pool lifeguard. It will cover Pool Rescue Techniques, Lifeguarding Theory, First Aid and CPR. The course is physically demanding and will include swimming to set times, lifting casualties and diving to the deepest part of the swimming pool. Training and assessment for the NPLQ are in three sections; candidates must pass all of them to attain the qualification.

There is a mixture of written multi-choice papers and practical lessons. You must be at least 16 and jump/dive into deep water. You must swim 50 metres in less than 60 seconds and swim 100 metres continuously on front and back in deep water. The ability to tread water for 30 seconds, surface dive to the pool floor, and climb out unaided without using a ladder/steps, as well as where the pool design permits, are also essential. There may be opportunities to gain the First Aid at Work, AED, and anaphylaxis qualifications.
