Did you know that by law, every swimming pool, beach and water area that is open to the public, must have a lifeguard on duty holding a license that is approved by either the Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC) for Dubai or The Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (ADQCC) for Abu Dhabi.
Blue Guard delivers Lifeguard training courses in Water Safety & First Aid for the lifeguards in the UAE. Undergoing the correct Lifeguard Certificate & Training will enable the lifeguard to prevent water-related risks and injuries across indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hotels, residential and community pools, public beaches, private resorts, schools as well as in your own home.
Blue Guard provides additional lifeguard support and conducts risk management and auditing programs for swimming pools, waterfronts and beaches of luxury hotels and resorts. We provide consultancy services for companies during the recruitment process of their lifeguards.
