Young people from Kouga will once again have the opportunity to train as lifesavers.

A golden opportunity awaits young people who would like to be trained in saving lives.

Kouga Municipality will once again be offering free training to young people who would like to become lifesavers.

Kouga Executive Mayor Daphne Kettledas said the training would be open to anyone, aged between 16 and 30.

“You don’t have to be able to swim yet, as this will be part of the training,” she said.

The training will last for at least six months, after which trainees will be examined. Those who pass the exam will receive a Lifeguard Award, which is an internationally-recognised lifesaving qualification.

Registration is free.
