Water Safety Ireland is a full member of the International Lifesaving Federation, meaning our pool and beach Lifeguard certifications not only allow you to work in Ireland. They give you the chance to save lives worldwide.

Lifeguarding has a number of great benefits. While providing paid employment during the summer months, it is a great way to develop lifelong skills and make a valuable contribution to your local community.

If you have already trained as a lifeguard, the International Lifeguard Equivalency Table helps you decide what qualifications from other countries are accepted for employment in Ireland.
