Lifeguarding courses now offered in Hawkesbury

For the first time, the Robert Hartley Sports Complex pool in Hawkesbury hosted a Lifesaving Instructor course. The complex’s five new bilingual Lifesaving Instructors (LSI) will be helping to run and offer new lifesaving programs for children eight years and up, as well as Bronze Star, Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross courses. Previously, those who wished to take these courses had to travel to Ottawa or Montreal. With two new Instructor Trainers, Hawkesbury is now able to offer a variety of lifesaving and lifeguarding courses as well as Instructor Courses in both French and English.
