The NPLQ is the most awarded lifeguard qualification in the UK and Ireland and is also internationally recognised. More than 40,000 pool lifeguards qualify with a RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) every year, and there are currently more than 80,000 pool lifeguards qualified in the NPLQ – 95% of all UK pool lifeguards! RLSS UK is regulated by Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and CCEA in Northern Ireland. 

The NLPQ programme is available at the Castle Rock School campus. Unfortunately due to current covid-19 regulations, we do not have any dates to share.
