Cork County Council in partnership with Midleton College and Water Safety Ireland recently launched the first Beach Lifeguard Academy. The aim of the academy is to encourage sustained growth in the number of new lifeguard recruits to continue to provide the invaluable service they offer on the beautiful beaches of County Cork.
The Academy is an initiative of Cork County Council’s Water Safety office spearheaded by Water Safety Officer Caroline Casey and facilitated by Beach Lifeguard Tutor Graham Kerr. Students of the Beach Lifeguard Academy will have the opportunity to visit and meet with a number of the lifeguard teams on duty throughout the season.
