In September, LSV announced that a systematic extension would be applied for Pool Lifeguard qualified industry personnel, who hold awards which had expired since training ceased as a result of the State of Emergency. The extension was set for a six (6) week period from the date that all pools were permitted to reopen.
As at 9 November, all pools are able to reopen. As a result the extension is set to expire on 21 December 2020.
This planned extension does not extend to First Aid awards, as these remain available (to both new and existing candidates) from various training providers.
