Luke Cunningham, Managing Director & Founder, created Blue Guard in October 2017, Dubai – UAE, out of a deep passion for the ocean and a strong desire to keep people safe.

Training and Certification of Lifeguards and First Aiders are the core services offered and courses can be customized to meet any workplace environment. Trainings can be delivered according to your company’s Risk Assessments and further consultation can be provided if Emergency Action Plans (EAP’s) need to be created or modified.

During the examination of Lifeguards, the quality Blue Guard delivers is guaranteed by our external examiners, to ensure the results obtained are based on 100% competency.

Courses on Lifeguarding & First Aid Training, provide a hands-on approach to educating people the importance of “Life Saving” and ensuring that they have the necessary skills to perform in emergency scenarios.

“Team – Blue Guard” works effortlessly on a daily basis to re-invent the way we generate awareness about what Blue Guard stands for, and how we customize training that is tailored to each individual learner’s “outcome”.

The ‘brand’ of Blue Guard will represent a trademark of quality. Through our perseverance of positive change, working alongside governments, every Lifeguard will go through our training program. We will work tirelessly for it to become compulsory by law to obtain a “First Aid” license when applying for a driver’s license. Anyone working with children must have a ‘First Aid’ certification. Every parent must learn ‘First Aid’ as a pre-requisite to having a child. Schools will eventually implement ‘First Aid’ as part of their curriculum which will establish a safer future environment for the generations to come. Our end goal is for every person to be “First Aid” trained.

We will establish the “Blue Guard Centre of Excellence” which will consist of a swimming pool where hydraulic turbines create waves that will replicate rough seas. Training rooms will surround the pool to incorporate “Emergency First Aid Training” for a complete 360 experience. Other companies in our industry will notice the value we deliver and will use our facility to further enhance their customer experiences. The innovative technology we will incorporate in our education platforms will allow anyone, anywhere, the access to “lifesaving” skills & techniques.

The Blue Guard team will travel to under privileged countries and refugee camps, to spread awareness of Basic First Aid which will in turn save countless lives. Blue Guard will set up “Surf Life Saving Clubs” that will teach water competency and water safety skills incorporating all age groups.

Either directly or indirectly, Blue Guard will impact millions of families worldwide by keeping their loved ones safe. The world will be a safer place as a result of Blue Guard’s stamp.
