The City of Estevan Leisure Services Division is preparing for the regular programming of aquatics once restrictions are lifted, and to be ready, future lifeguards/instructors need to have proper training and credentials that are up to date.
“We are offering a revised Water Safety Instructor course and First Aid Course that keeps the provincial restrictions in mind,” shared program manager Erin Wilson.
“The Water Safety Instructor course will be separated into two sections. In the first section, participants will complete a virtual meeting with the instructor and a 20-hour online module. The second section, once the pool is filled, will see the participants complete swimming components and 4-hour practice teaching with a 25-hour classroom setting.”
“We will also be offering a sectioned Standard First Aid CPR C Blended Course. In the online section, participants can complete course information at their own pace. Once Provincial restrictions are lifted a second section will take place that participants will complete a 4 – 6-hour instructor-led practical classroom setting.”
Participants can register or find out more information on these courses by calling the Information Desk at 306-634-1888 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
