The National Lifeguard Training Centre
The National Lifeguard Training Centre is the premier venue for first aid and emergency rescue training in the South West. This unique educational facility is sandwiched between high cliffs and the sea at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay. The National Lifeguard Training Centre provides a range of vocational courses which utilise this idyllic environment to teach new skills.
It’s only natural that Beach Lifeguard training should form a core element of the educational programmes at the centre. There is a rich surf lifesaving heritage in this part of Cornwall and Lusty Glaze beach was the perfect choice as a base for the country’s first dedicated lifeguard training centre.
The centre is staffed by emergency rescue professionals, including senior lifeguards, paramedics and coastguards. The centre is highly respected and is affiliated to the Royal Life Saving Society, West Country Ambulance Services, HM Coastguards and the Adventure Activities Licensing Asssociation.
