Outline:

Recognized as the standard measure of lifeguard performance in Canada, National Lifeguard (NL) education is designed to develop a sound understanding of lifeguarding principles, good judgment, and a mature and responsible attitude toward the role of the lifeguard. The primary role of the NL lifeguard is the prevention of emergency situations and, where this fails, the timely and effective resolution of emergencies.

The NL Waterfront course emphasizes the lifeguarding skills, principles and practices, and the decision-making processes which will assist the lifeguard to provide effective safety supervision in waterfront environments.

The NL Surf Option is designed to develop the lifeguarding skills, principles and practices and the decision-making processes which will assist the lifeguard to provide effective safety supervision of surf beach environments. It builds on the fundamental values, judgment, knowledge, skills and fitness developed in the NL Waterfront certification. The NL Surf Option is specifically designed for lifeguards working in surf environments. Trainees need to work in waves of at least 1 meter and from a number of different types of beaches.
