Life Saving

Our life-saving classes trains strong swimmers in first aid and water rescue. The Singapore Life-Saving Society (SLSS) is a national organization that certify lifeguards. Passing its examinations will give trainees legal certification for lifeguarding.

SLSS certificates are useful for:

  • meeting some proficiency badge requirements for the Scouts, Boys’ Brigade, and other uniformed groups in Singapore.
  • meeting the requirements of Community Involvement Programme (CIP). Students may volunteer to be lifeguards at the swimming pools of their polytechnics or universities, or at one of the many public beaches in Singapore.
  • Finally, the training, certification, and volunteer work can also be used for completing the Physical, Skills, Volunteering, and Residential sections of the National Youth Achievement Award. (NYAA)

(The SLSS is a national member of The Royal life Saving Society and The International Life Saving Federation.)
