“The preservation of human life by the teaching of swimming, lifesaving and survival techniques”

STA receives no UK Government funding or support, yet has experienced significant growth over the last few years. The increasing number of members, both in the UK and abroad, is evidence of the quality of STA’s standards.

>  National Rescue Standard (NaRS) Lifeguarding / Lifesaving and First Aid qualifications;
