Kalliopi First Aid Training - Courses - Pool Lifeguard training courseThe Kalliopi First Aid Training Pool Lifeguard course is a 21 hour training course / seminar, completed in 3 days, enabling students to become qualified under the legislation laid down by the Government of Cyprus with regard to the public swimming pool regulation of 1992 which was published in the Government Gazette according to Article 52 of the constitution. 

Participants will train and qualify as Pool Lifeguards after assessment in Methods & Techniques on how to prevent persons from drowning and provide basic life support, CPR & administer oxygen therapy for drowning victims. They will learn the principles of pool lifeguarding and participate in practical water rescue training skills for the conscious and unconscious casualty.  Participants will also be trained in the use of Oxygen for medical emergencies as well as CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) skills on adults, children and infants, in accordance with the latest (2015) European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines.
The Pool Lifeguard course includes in-depth training on topics which include:  The Role of a Pool Lifeguard;  Scene & Safety Assessment; Legislation and Legal Considerations; Basic Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) / Recovery Position; Sudden Cardiac Arrest; Heart Attack; Hygiene & Personal Protection against Cross Infection; Oxygen Therapy; Automated External Defibrillator Overview and Use; Emergency Assistance Plan; Chain of Survival and Water Rescue Techniques.
The Kalliopi First Aid Training Pool Lifeguard course begins in a meeting room or conference room with an introductory presentation in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. As the course progresses, we move to the swmming pool for practical work and practice in water rescue techniques.
To ensure both theoretical and practical elements of the Pool Lifeguard course is enjoyable, interesting and effective, we use a combination of teaching methods including; Powerpoint presentations with audio visual / video elements and other presentation aids; fun team building exercises; team practice of first aid, lifesaving and rescue techniques and easy, practical team scenarios.  Coffee Breaks, lunch and rest periods are built into the Pool Lifeguard training programme.
During the course there will be hands-on practice of CPR on manikins and in-water scenarios simulating the rescue of victims.  Of course these exercises involve a moderate amount of physical activity, both in and out the water, so both casual clothes and swimwear will be required to be worn.  We provide paricipants with their own copy of course training materials and educational handouts which can be used afterwards as useful reference materials.  Pool Lifeguard certifications are issued by us after the successful completion of all elements of the course and a final assessment.  The ability to swim reasonably well is a pre-requisite of the Pool Lifeguard Course.
This Pool Lifeguard course is approved for subsidy by the HRDA / ANAΔ / ANAD.  Pool Lifeguard course certifications are issued and approved in accordance with government legislation in Cyprus.
