Who should become a Facilitator

Early Childhood

As a pre-school teacher you'll be able to deliver a range of programs that start to develop confidence and water safety skills in your children.

Primary School

For primary school teachers we can help you teach learners about personal responsibility, and how kids need to become aware of their own safety.

Secondary School

As a secondary school teacher, we have a range of programs linked to the PDHPE curriculum that develop water safety and rescue skills in your students.

Community Partner

If you're a community facility then we have a range of programs that help add value to your organisation. If you want to offer extra services or build your revenues.

An approved Royal Life Saving NSW Facilitator, must have at least one of the following qualifications: 

  • Qualified School Teacher
  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
  • Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety Certificate (AUSTSWIM or equivalent)

                                       In addition, a Royal Life Saving NSW Facilitator must:

  1. Hold a current Working with Children Check
  2. Hold a current Resuscitation Award or Higher (e.g. HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)

Please note that even with a current First Aid qualification, RLSNSW will still require a current Resuscitation Award, or CPR unit of Competency

  Depending on the type of Facilitator that you wish to sign up for, there may be further requirements such as completion of a workbook.
