All our classes are taken by ASA qualified staff and run for 30 minutes. Rookie lifesaving and adult sessions run for 45 minutes. For the non swimmer and beginner levels the teacher will be in the water with the class meaning parents are not required to get in the pool. However parents must remain on poolside for the duration of the lesson.
