KAL is offering the rare opportunity to have the cost of the Lifeguard course paid for which is normally £275.
Our Lifeguards are key to ensuring the safety of swimmers and other customers around our facilities. It's not just about keeping swimmers safe, our Lifeguards deliver a fantastic customer experience to each customer ensuring that equipment is set up and removed and that our high cleanliness standards are maintained at all times.
KAL is holding a Lifeguard Recruitment Open Day on Wednesday 18 September 2019 at Dewsbury Sports Centre.
As part of the open day, candidates will be asked to complete a swimming test to show that they are able to attend a Lifeguard Course. The swimming test will include:

Those who pass the Swimming Test will then have an interview on the same day. Successful candidates will then attend a Lifeguard Course paid for by KAL which is to be held week commencing Monday 28 October 2019.
