Description: Recognized as the standard measurement of lifeguarding performance in Canada, the NLS Pool option develops a sound understanding of lifeguarding principles, good judgement and communication skills, and a mature and responsible attitude toward the role of the lifeguard. The NLS lifeguard’s primary role is to prevent injuries (and when necessary, effectively manage emergencies) and to facilitate a safe and enjoyable aquatic experience. NLS training develops the basic lifeguarding skills needed to adapt to different aquatic facilities and situations. Please bring your Bronze Cross award (or temporary card), Standard First Aid certificate (recommended within the last 2-years), bathing suit/towel, pen/paper and lunch. NLS is worth 2 grade 12 High School credits.
