As a trainer, it is important to have a critical eye and differentiate between a guard who can demonstrate proficiency in multiple skills one at a time and a guard who can demonstrate proficiency of multiple skills that are strung together. This also is true for a lifeguard team that can only perform in a handful of specific situations and a team that adapts to the situation as the scenario or incident changes and progresses.

This skill builder will help you become a better trainer.  One that can more efficiently deliver information needed to varying skill levels within a staff as well as recognize where additional work is needed.

This training will cover and you will get practice in:

  • Clarifying training objectives
  • Establishing limits for scenarios
  • Provide clear focus and feedback
  • Managing scenario pace
  • Teaching trainers to work through challenges
