Lifesaving 123 Award Course

Lifesaving 123 Award Course

The Lifesaving 123 Award course consists of three phases which teach swimmers the fundamentals of water safety, theory and practical aspects of land-based and water-based non-contact rescue as well as resuscitation skills.  Trainees are expected to be strong swimmers as the course will be focused more on lifesaving techniques rather than swimming strokes.

Upon completion of all stages of training, trainees that passed the three basic lifesaving exams will be awarded Lifesaving 123 badges and certificates issued by Singapore Life Saving Society.

Approximate course duration: 20 to 30 hours
