To begin training to become a lifeguard all applicants must complete an initial swim assessment at the National Swim Centre. The distance is 400m and this must be completed within 8 minutes.
Applicants that successfully pass the ISA will begin the 60hr week long training course. This course will cover CPR, First Aid, Pool and Beach lifeguard certifications in addition to daily operating precedures on the towers.
Applicants that pass the training course will have a physical assessment consisting of a 1 mile run, 400m swim and 500m paddle. Each area must be completed within 8 minutes. Passing applicants will be qualified for a
part-time/full-time lifeguard position.
The Bermuda Lifeguard Service works to ensure the safety of swimmers on Horseshoe, John Smiths, Clearwater and Turtle Beaches. Lifeguards are posted when the beaches are open from 1 May to 31 October on Horseshoe Beach and from 24 May to Labour Day on the other beaches.
To be considered as a lifeguard, you must be:
16 years old or older;
In good health;
A strong swimmer
The Bermuda Lifeguard Service maintains a roster of 12 full-time lifeguards and reserve staff. Full-time lifeguards work a variable five-day, 40 hour week. The working day lasts from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. There is a lifeguard roster that rotates each week.
Reserve lifeguards must meet all the same prerequisite and training requirements and must pass the same assessment tests as full time lifeguards in order to qualify. Reserves work part time on weekends or when the service is understaffed, when someone is sick, absent or during shortages at the end of the season.
