So many excursions venture on or near bodies of water – whether researching fluvial dynamics, marine ecosystems or simply a university climbing club trip to Swanage.
The water element can be a major highlight of the trip but you have to consider what you would do in the event of an accident:
- What if someone slipped in the water?
- How much time do you have to get them out?
- What should you do with the rest of the group?
- What is that orange ring thing and where is it!?
Lots of courses focus on the lifesaving knowledge needed to deal with this sort of situation should it arise. However, the The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) National Water Safety Management Programme (NWSMP) is different. It is designed to give people the knowledge base and confidence to ensure that no one falls in the water in the first place – “prevention is better than a cure”!
It focuses on managing groups and their safety to prevent incidents occurring, as well as giving you the tools to know how to affect a rescue should the worst happen.
Water Safety is of paramount importance to the well being of anyone visiting a body of water, be it a swimming pool, lake, river or beach. This pragmatic, principle based course sits perfectly within our ethos at Training Expertise and we are therefore proud to offer the RLSS NWSMP as both a bespoke or open course as part of our Field Safety Training.
