What is the Australian Lifeguard Network?

The Australian Lifeguard Network is an initiative of Royal Life Saving Society - Australia aimed at providing opportunities for Australia's Pool Lifeguards to connect with each other.

A Lifeguard's job requires a high degree of judgement, knowledge, skill and fitness in both day-to-day Lifeguarding and in the stress of an emergency. Training helps sustain the Lifeguard’s confidence in their ability to prevent accidents and to respond competently when they do occur. Both Lifeguards and employers must recognise the need for, and encourage, regular ongoing Lifeguard training and development opportunities. The Australian Lifeguard Network is here to support the Australian aquatic industry share knowledge, ideas and expertise to ensure that Australia’s Pool Lifeguards are amongst the world’s best.
