What is National Lifeguard Service?

In this course students bring their knowledge full circle with applying the physical and water rescue skills learned in both Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross. NLS builds on the students’ knowledge while also adding physical skills, effect pool guarding, team based rescues and both land and water spinal management.
