Rescue

Whether you're already familiar with the concept of lifeguard or completely new, you're more than welcome to come train with us.

  • So you're new to the concept? Our lifesavers can teach you how to save someone who's drowning. We offer the option to obtain an internationally recognised lifesaving certificate and train you in the lifesaving sport.
  • Have you saved quite a few victims yourself we offer you a more challenging program. Besides the lifesaver certificates we will be offering an open water lifeguard course, boat rescue certificates and even instructor certificates.

We teach you how to prevent a drowning from happening by teaching you practical skills such as first aid, different rescue methods and some theoretical knowledge. Besides that we're present at sporting events and festivals to ensure the safety of the participants of those event. Last but not least: how about the perfect summer job? Our members are active guards on some of the Dutch beaches and so could you.
