Training Courses

Approved Training Centre

Sandford Parks Lido is an IQL Approved Training Centre for lifeguard training including the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) which all pool staff must undertake to work at the facility.

Throughout the season the lido hosts a number of NPLQ training courses. These are typically a week of training with an assessment at the end.

National Pool Lifeguard Qualification

The course requires that you complete a minimum number of hours and as such it is required for you to have 100% attendance.

Each day will be a mixture of wet and dry sessions, both around the Sandford Parks Lido complex and in the classroom, please being appropriate clothing for post swimming and in case of wet weather.

You must be 16 or over to complete the NPLQ Lifeguard course.
