The Emergency Responder Pool Programme (ER-Pool) is designed to assist designated staff to respond to an emergency within the swimming pool environment when the alarm has been raised. The Emergency Responder can be any member of the facility called upon to rescue and provide first aid.
ER-Pool is also a suitable qualification to back up and support the lifeguard team. In addition, this qualification is an excellent foundation for becoming a lifeguard and completing the RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.
The ER-Pool programme is designed for use in small pools no greater than 1.5m in depth such as a health club or hotel pool.
For pools that require direct supervision on poolside and for larger pools, the RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification would be more suitable.
