Training offered for lifeguards
Budding lifesavers will get the chance to gain essential qualifications on a training course at Exmouth beach.
The course will train participants to achieve the Surf Life Saving Beach Lifeguard Qualification – a requirement for those applying for work as RNLI Lifeguards.
The course will take place between August 30 and September 3, followed by an exam on September 4.
It will be run by Teignmouth Surf Lifesaving Club and is open to anyone over the age of 16 who meets the minimum fitness requirements, which include being able to swim 400m in seven and half minutes and run 200m on sand in 40 seconds.
RNLI Lifeguard Supervisor for East Devon, Julian Smart, said: “We’re keen to encourage people living in the East Devon area who might be interested in working for the RNLI on the beaches in Exmouth, Teignmouth and Dawlish.”

“Gaining your beach lifeguard qualification means you can apply to become a RNLI lifeguard as soon as the online applications open for the 2012 season and if successful, secure your place early.”
