Safety and Survival Awards

Share this page

Children’s safety in the water is a major concern for parents and guardians, and the ASA’s Safety and Survival Awards are designed to offer a little peace of mind.

Covering survival knowledge, awareness of dangers and vital life-saving information, this range of four awards is a must for any parent to consider for their child.

The Preliminary Safety Skills Award offers your children an introduction to water safety and is targeted at swimmers who no longer use buoyancy aids.

The Personal Survival Awards are in two levels and complement Stages 8-10 of the LTS. They ensure learners know how to react if they find themselves in difficulty by testing them in real-life situations.

Finally, a natural follow-on from the Personal Survival Awards, the Water Rescue Award teaches your children basic lifesaving techniques. A wider range of skills in this area can be gained by taking the Rookie Lifeguard Award.
