This specifically designed course is aimed at swimmers and

coaches/teachers looking to further their knowledge of the sea environment,

risk assessment and how to rescue a swimmer in trouble.

A great bolt on CPD, filled with useful and practical information!

The course is split into two parts:


1. Theory over Zoom - Two x 1.5hr session:  

Two hours covering an introduction to the beach/ocean environment, gaining knowledge and awareness of weather, tides, swell, rip currents, wildlife and more ...

Another two hour session which looks into hazard awareness, analytical risk assessments, their use and how to complete them.

On the practical day, we put into practice the theory learnt from the Zoom meetings. 


2. Practical - 7 hours covering:

Practical application of risk assessment

Learning rescue skills with and without equipment: throw rope and rescue tube.

This will give you increased confidence that should a situation arise during a session, you will be better equipped to deal with someone in trouble in the water as well as exploring available safety and rescue equipment for your swim session.

Price includes access to the Coast to Coast online learning platform to prepare your course.

We recommend refreshing these skills after 24 months and offer a one day follow up course (£95) whereby we put you through scenarios to build confidence, iron out any problems caused by skill fade as well as helping to improve technique and build on what you learnt from your initial course.

"Loic and Kate are not only true professionals, they are welcoming, encouraging, patient & kind. Delivering a practical life saving course during social distancing was always going to be challenging, however without any fuss every effort was made to ensure the participating groups and comfort came first. The training was excellent, the online content & Zoom meetings brilliant and the kit and equipment provided was all 1st class.

I unhesitatingly recommend Coast to Coast Water Safety"
