Lifeguard Courses at Everybody Sport

We are following all awarding organisation and government guidelines in relation to COVID-19. We will continue to monitor and we may need to make further amendments at short notice depending on changes from Government and the Awarding Body.

Appropriate PPE may need to be used during any practical activities where social distancing is not possible – this will be kept to a minimum.

Please do not attend any training course if you have symptoms of or have tested positive for Covid-19.
