Instructor Development Program

Beginning September 1, 2018, the Society is opening up seats in National Lifeguard Instructor courses and Instructor Trainer Clinics as part of the new Instructor Development Program available to affiliates. Only paid-up Affiliates (Corporate or Independent) may submit applications under the program.

  • The program covers the cost of course registration only. It does not cover accommodations, meals, or travel costs for candidates.
  • Sponsored candidates must still meet all of the required course pre-requisites for the program in question.
  • Sponsored candidates will be responsible for having and/or purchasing up to date versions of all literature and resources that are part of the pre-requisites for the program in question.
  • Affiliates may submit more than one program application for a given course, but final decisions on which candidates are accepted for entry under the program are entirely at the discretion of the Lifesaving Society – Manitoba Branch.
  • The Lifesaving Society – Manitoba Branch reserves the right to amend or cancel the terms of this program at any time.
