Training Programmes

  • First Aid & CPR
    First Aid is the temporary help given to a sick or injured person before professional medical help can be provided. This timely assistance is most critical to victims, and in most cases, is life saving. A first-aiders immediate response in the first fifteen minutes after the incident is a determining factor of what will happen to the victim in the next one hour. Taking a practical course in First Aid is the best preparation for dealing with an emergency. RLSS (I)’s land based training courses are available in 3 modules i.e. CPR, Trauma Management (covering CPR, Bleeding, Fractures, Dislocations and Spiral Management) and Basic Life Support.

    RLSS (I)’s Land based Training Programmes cover the following protocols:
    Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
    Bleeding – Internal / External
    Fractures and Dislocations
    Head, Neck and Back injuries
    Shock and Electrocution
    Heat Burns and Chemical Burns
    Angina, Heart Attack, Stroke, Cardiac and Respiratory Arrest

  • Lifesaver Course
    Lifesaving is the act of rescue, resuscitation and first aid. The main purpose of the Lifesaver Course is to prepare volunteers to assist those involved in aquatic accidents, teaching them the knowledge of basic rescue techniques, the skills to perform them and the judgement to know when and how to act so that they can be prepared for emergencies. RLSS (I) trains lifesavers in modular form.

    RLSS (I)’s Water based Training Programmes cover the following protocols:
    First Aid
    Recognition of dangers in aquatic environments
    Dry Rescue

    The training curriculum is based on the Bronze Medallion standard for the Royal Life Saving Society (Commonwealth).          
  • Rookie Lifesaver
    The programme offers a unique aquatic alternative for those who love the water, who want to be challenged and who want more than just lessons. The Rookie Lifesaver provides opportunities for children to keep interested and active in aquatics, especially quick learners and those caught between levels and programs. It’s a fantastic opportunity to further develop swimming skills at the same time as developing new and challenging lifesaving skills.
    This program is an alternate to traditional assessment checklist based programs where participants learn the skills required for pool lifesaving and is based on personal best achievement.
    The best description of the Rookie Lifesaver Course is SERIOUS FUN! There’s a serious purpose behind the program. Kids learn skill that will empower them to assist in to save a life.

    The emphasis is on the following skills:
    Basic First Aid
    Fitness
    Swimming Skills
    Recognition of dangers
    Lifesaving Knowledge
    Leadership and Teamwork
