Pool Emergency Responder (regulated by OFQUAL)

The STA Level 2 Award for Pool Emergency Responder is designed to train staff working in pools of less than 1.5 metres in depth. This makes the qualification ideal for use in smaller hotel and leisure pools where constant poolside supervision is not required. The qualification is also suitable for duty managers who do not typically lifeguard but may wish to hold a qualification to support their lifeguard team in an emergency.

You will learn how to respond to a swimming pool incident, perform CPR, first aid, and aquatic rescue skills including basic spinal injury management.
