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 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.
