Belgravia Academy’s first Pool Lifeguard course has been a resounding success, receiving 20 bookings since its launch on April 3rd at Knox Leisureworks.
The course was a pilot program, with seven participants chosen from Belgravia Leisure’s Victorian venues, including Yawa Aquatic Centre, Thomastown Recreation and Aquatic Centre, Mill Park Leisure Centre, Keilor East Leisure Centre and WaterMarc.
The participants completed online e-learning modules developed by Belgravia Academy before attending the course. The day started with classroom learning and assessments, followed by practical assessments in the pool, including tows, rescues for different situations, and spinal and scenario assessments. The day ended with a feedback session to recap the course content and delivery.
The participants were able to discuss how systems and processes are implemented at each venue, such as emergency plans and inductions, and where content can be changed for continuous improvement and best practices for Belgravia Leisure. The course was so successful that the group had a team meeting the following week to discuss further continuous improvement.
The launch of Belgravia Academy’s new Pool Lifeguard course has been a fantastic success, and we look forward to continuing to deliver quality training to venues across Australia.
