RLSS UK has developed a two-hour Water Rescue Equipment Training session to ensure as many people as possible are confident and competent in the use of water rescue equipment found around waterways.
The session develops skills and confidence in rescue equipment use, as well as developing the knowledge and ability to safely improvise, where no rescue equipment is available.
The RLSS UK Water Rescue Equipment Training covers:
• Open water hazards (such as canals and rivers)
• Cold water shock
• Types of rescue
• Public Rescue Equipment (PRE)
Each person who successfully completes the training and achieves the required level of competence will receive an e-certificate. Training is then valid for two years from the date of completion.
