Our goal is to set a standard, which creates a level of lifesaving skill to assist qualified rescuers.

The Level 2 Surf Instructor is qualified to instruct intermediate to advanced level surfers (up to club level surfers) and has the knowledge to act as a camp manager and head coach.
NARS Rescue Certificate
Due to legal requirements, we can only recognize internationally valid certificates that authorize the holder to work as a lifeguard or lifeguard in an ocean environment. Courses given in swimming pools, lakes, rivers or the various courses for other aquatic activities having any connection with the topics of first aid and beach rescue cannot be recognized, as this could lead to significant problems in case of emergency.
As we are well aware that many certificates that exist nowadays do not meet these requirements, we are happy to be able to offer – in cooperation with our partner and waterman Dean Gough – the course SLSA / ILS Water Safety in combination with the Surf Lifesaving Great Britain (SLSGB) Surf Coach Lifesaver Award and thus the two most renowned rescue accreditations in the world, directly after the Surf Instructor.
