Dorset Lifesaving Centre
FIRST AID COURSES | LIFEGUARD COURSES | WILD SWIM COACHING & GUIDING
I am fanatical about First Aid and Water Safety, I've been delivering First Aid & Lifeguard courses around the UK for some time, however I took the plunge in 2020 to create Dorset Lifesaving Centre. Within weeks we were inundated with bookings and have trained over 150 lifeguards and first aiders within the first 12 months.
I took a step towards wild swim guiding and coaching when people began asking for advice on taking to the water in Rivers, Lakes and the Sea. This gave me a great opportunity to educate people on the dangers, their phobias and how to stay safe.
We also hire freelance trainers to meet demand, following a supervised induction period.

Have just finished my RLSS pool lifeguarding ticket with Rich, have spend many years as an RNLI beach Lifeguard and have just taken to pool. Was a great course professionally run by rich over 5 days, he has lots of Knowledge that he brought to the course as well as experience. Would highly recommended Rich to all looking to take an Rlss course or other training, as he has qualifications than i knew existed! With the hands on experience to back it all up! Thankyou for a great week Rich hope to be back soon for another course

The Dorset Lifesaving Centre hosted me on the Open Water Lifesaving course 11-13 December. The course was delivered by Rich Lloyd and everything from the pre-reading, zoom classroom, testing, first aid and open water rescues was conducted in a friendly and professional manner. Everything ran to time and the course members were well prepared for the test.
I would recommend this course to anyone looking to gain a new life skill and looking to work in water parks etc.
On a final note I’m now a convert to all year round open water swimming!

A great course, delivered at a pace and tempo that allowed we to learn and confirm what I should be doing in first aid situation.
