RescueSkills - About Us
RescueSkills supply First Aid and related Health and Safety courses, and training for the RLSS/IQL National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) in Hampshire, West Sussex and surrounding areas. We are based in Fareham, Hampshire, but travel far and wide to deliver courses.
RescueSkills was started initially in late 2011 solely to deliver the RLSS NPLQ courses, and although we had been training first aid for many years, at that time, we could not deliver first aid courses directly to clients because of terms and conditions of our employer - a leading national First Aid training and services organisation, who would have deemed it a conflict of interest, and would have terminated our employment. When that organisation decided in 2012 to change our terms and conditions, and reduced our rate of pay (by a whopping 25.4%), it was a fairly easy decision to make that we would start delivering first aid courses in our own name, and to part company with the commercial training side of the organisation we had up until then supported fully.
Our mission is to deliver courses of high professional standards at a cost effective price to as many people as possible to allow them to have the confidence to save lives.
All our courses are delivered by experts in their fields - can you be sure of that with other training providers? All our trainers are personally known to us, and are colleagues we have worked with for many years. We do not just seek trainers at the last minute for courses, and do not take trainers on a first-come-first-served approach unlike some 'national' companies who are in fact nothing more than booking agencies. Make sure your staff are being trained by currently serving experts in First Aid and Health & Safety.
The business is owned and managed by John Dowdeswell, who has a wealth of experience in first aid and related subjects. John personally delivers most of the courses, but has healthcare professionals, pre-hospital care experts, and health and safety experts to call on where additional advice or recommendations beyond his experiences may need to be made to clients.
If you are an RLSS/IQL approved training centre, and are looking to run a Pool Lifeguard course for a team, please feel free to call or email us at for details of competitive pricing using your facilities and our trainer.
A list of courses that we offer is now available. If you can't find a course that matches your requirements, please don't be afraid to ask us.
