National Water Safety Management Programme

NWSMP is a key step forward in developing the water safety knowledge, skills and confidence of those operating around the water safety margins.

Do you work close to the water margins yourself or manage groups around water environments and are keen to achieve the NWSMP Award? Do you know of an employer/ organisation who would benefit from the NWSMP?

Interested in becoming a NWSMP Instructor?

To qualify to deliver NWSMP, individuals need to:

  • Attend a four day instructor course or achieve the NWSMP Award (Level 3) and attend a two day instructor orientation course
  • Hold a recognised Level 3 training qualification
  • Provide a CV that shows experience in open water

A mentoring process is in place to support probationary NWSMP Instructors whilst they become fully qualified.
