Rescue Swimming

Rescue Swimming refers to a set of skills that enables an individual to attempt a rescue when a fellow swimmer is struggling in the water. These skills include a combination of communication skills, specific “rescue” swimming strokes, as well as release and evade techniques for self-preservation in the event that a rescue starts to go wrong. Our rescue swimming course will give you the skills to react in an emergency with confidence.

Your Personal Swim Coach offers a set of much needed training as a constituent of the Advanced 1 and Advanced 2 courses. The skills, abilities, and knowledge we provide you with will  make you more capable to react confidently in a possible emergency.

Rescue Swimming Workshops

By popular demand, Your Personal Swim Coach is running three rescue swimming workshops again this year.

This is an intensive program for adults and kids who want to feel more secure while heading the summer holidays or in day-to-day situations that could occur whilst living in this land reclaimed from the water.

COURSE CONTENT
The content is is partly based on a C+level survival diploma, adapted to include sea survival skills as well as water-related first aid skills. Additionally, you will practice other lifesaving skills relating to boating accidents as well as dealing with hypothermia and other physical disorders in the water.

In this series of 3 workshops, each session will offer new elements, so following all 3 is highly recommended. The course will run on 3 Sunday afternoons, which can be booked individually, although we recommend the full course of 3.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
At the end of the course you will be able to take the right decision in case of unexpected situations near and in the water. Your will feel prepared to potentially save the life of another in trouble in the water.

If you are parent, this course is highly suitable for you in preparing you with the skills you may need to help your children in a potential drowning situation.

FOR WHO?
Adults and Children are welcome, participants should have A level diploma / be able to swim confidently.
There is no need to be a perfect swimmer but if your skills are not sufficient to undergo this course, we would be happy to welcome you to one of our swimming instruction courses first.
