We’ve been saving lives for over 100 years on the beach through our lifesaving services. On top of this, we help the community through the delivery of first aid training and education programs and courses, equipping everyday Australians to be lifesavers.

So, who better to gain your first aid training and complete your CPR course with than the lifesaving experts at Surf Life Saving WA?

We offer both private and public first aid training and CPR courses throughout the Perth metropolitan area, teaching participants vital lifesaving skills and equipping them with practical lifesaving knowledge that could help save the life of a family member, friend, colleague or a complete stranger.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination

With additional COVID-19 guidelines being implemented by many organisations, training venues may now require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for individuals to attend site.

All course participants are advised that proof of COVID-19 vaccination may be requested for entry to training venues. If proof of vaccination is not provided then the participants will not be able to access training on that day.

Wherever possible SLSWA will advise students if proof of vaccination is required prior to the day of training.
