The importance of water safety simply cannot be underestimated – and Laois Water Safety are enrolling now for their new classes this autumn and winter.
The classes, which take place in Portlaoise Leisure Centre, start on Tuesday, October 16, at 9pm and are open to adults from 15+ to take part.
The course is Bronze Gaisce Award Approved – which is especially important for Transition Year students who are deciding on their community challenge for the Gaisce Award.
This Water Safety course can eventually lead to a Pool Lifeguard qualification which is very important for all students studying Sports and Leisure for future employment. Most gyms have pools and require personal trainers and coaches to have this certification.
These classes are important for parents as well and having the necessary skills when needed during accidents at the beach and pools during the summer can be absolutely vital.
The course is suitable for all fitness levels and costs €75 for an adult or €60 for a student.
You can register before or on the night of October 16 at 8.30pm.
Presentation of all certificates from the previous season of water safety is at 8pm.
