CLO34 National water safety management programme

Level 1 and level 2 beach

Aimed at:  Staff who take children and young people to areas where there is water.

The national water safety management programme is a suite of interlinked training awards, specifically designed to assist organisations with employees who work in, or near water to meet their civil and statutory safety management obligations.  The awards in this programme bridge the gap between no qualification and full lifeguard.  It is not an award that will replace the lifeguard award but is an excellent way in which competency in and around water may be demonstrated.  This programme is progressive so everyone starts with the foundation basic water safety awareness award (a self-study unit followed by a half day guided learning unit) and may move into a range of environment specific awards (including river, still water and beach) leading, where required, to in-water rescue award.  This course covers level 1 and level 2 beach.  Level 2 river and level 3 in-water rescue are organised on demand.

Level 1: Basic water safety awareness module

  • For those working or supervising near water that do not have a definite intention to get into the water, for example beach games.

Level 2: Environment specific modules (beach)

  • For those who have a greater likelihood of getting closer to or in the water but with definite intention to stay within standing depth, for example rock pooling.
