National lifeguard - Waterpark
National Lifeguard certification is Canada's professional
lifeguard standard. National Lifeguard Waterpark provides advanced
training to develop the lifeguarding skills, principles and
practices, and the decision-making processes which will assist the
lifeguard to provide effective safety supervision in waterpark
environments. It builds on the fundamental values, judgment,
knowledge, skills and fitness acquired in the NLS Pool
certification. Fitness requirements include a deep-water spinal
carry and a 15 m approach and carry.
Successful candidates are certified by the Lifesaving Society -
Canada's lifeguarding experts.
