Welcome to My RLSS UK, an online area dedicated to providing our qualification holders, members, stakeholders, and supporters with easy access to the latest industry safety guidance, policies, resources, and opportunities. As well as providing specialist information, the area signposts you to relevant services and features within your RLSS UK Account (powered by tahdah). 

Every individual, organisation, club, branch, and group in our community is invaluable to us, and we endeavour to provide solutions and added value wherever possible in the hope that you will become a lifelong ambassador of the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK). Together we can work towards the Charity's mission to be the leader in lifesaving and lifeguarding in the UK and Ireland. By sharing our combined expertise and knowledge, with as many people as possible, we can provide everyone with the potential to save lives and enjoy water safely. 

We hope you find the area useful, if you require further support please call 0300 323 0096 or email [email protected]. 

Renewal within the validity period of your existing NRASTC is straightforward; candidates can provide evidence of six hours of suitable and sufficient ongoing training and competency assessment hours and complete a two-hour assessment or attend an eight-hour refresher course which includes the assessment.

The six hours of ongoing training and competency assessment hours must cover content from the NRASTC syllabus as follows:

  • The Teacher, Swimming Pool and Class Management (at least 2 hours)
  • In-water swimming pool rescue skills (at least 2 hrs)
  • CPR, AED, and First Aid (at least 2 hrs)

Ongoing training and competency assessment hours can be achieved by:

  • Attendance at ongoing NRASTC/lifeguard training and competency assessment (strongly recommended)
  • Attendance at alternative training, face-to-face or online, relating to in-water swimming pool rescue skills, CPR, First Aid and NRASTC/lifeguard theory

If the 'Results - Map' doesn't show any courses in your area, contact your local leisure centre, swimming pool, or lifesaving club for possible upcoming courses or email [email protected] for further assistance.  

Failure to renew within the validity period of your existing NRASTC qualification will result in you undertaking the full NRASTC course and assessment again. This carries an approximate £150 charge and a 16-hour training commitment.
