Water Safety and Lifesaving Qualifications

Our suite of water safety and lifesaving qualifications allow people of all abilities to gain the knowledge and skills they require to keep people safe near, on, or in water!

Gaining a water safety or lifesaving qualification is a great stepping stone into the leisure industry, working in an open water venue, or a great bolt on to your existing qualifications. These courses will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to assess emergency situations, prevent them from worsening, raise the alarm and save lives! 

​The water safety and lifesaving qualifications we deliver are recognised across the country in a wide variety of venues and careers. 

We have courses running throughout the year, taking place in person at one of several locations across the UK.

Our Previous Learners Say:


Ali Beckman, August 2022

"I recently completed my STA Level 2 Open Water Coaching qualification with Beyond the Water and was really impressed with the standard of tutoring by Sarah. She is knowledgeable, fun and professional. Her communication before, during and after the course was excellent and I absolutely loved the practical session at Lake Windermere"
