"I would like to pass on my thanks to the Royal Life Saving Society UK for the sterling work they have undertaken in publishing the Covid 19, National Pool Lifeguard Qualification Training and Assessing Guidance.

It must have been a difficult undertaking, factoring in all the social distancing guidance, but still enabling the Lifeguards to continue to work in a safe manner. 

I work in a very busy Leisure Centre, run an operated by Lancaster City Council, and really appreciate the guidance, which will enable me as a Trainer Assessor to reassure my lifeguards and to enable them to continue training in the safest way possible. 

This will ensure that once the go-ahead has been given by the Government to re-open swimming pools, we will be ahead of the game and ready to welcome all our customers to the Centre, who are missing their time in their local pool. 

The "Dedicated Team" at Royal Life Saving Society Head Quarters have delivered as ever, and with their ever-professional approach, this will ensure the good work the RLSS UK Lifeguards do every day, can continue".
