For over 25 years, club members have participated in a range of RLSS qualifications at Kingsmead Leisure Centre. Junior Rookie Lifeguard awards help to develop confidence and swimming abilities along with teaching basic lifesaving skills and how to get help. Senior members focus on achieving the Bronze, Silver and Gold Survive and Save programme which also includes a sports and open water element. In addition the National Aquatics Rescue Test for teachers and coaches of swimming is also offered within the club. Not only training how to save lives but are using qualifications to facilitate their GCSE PE and Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Canterbury Lifesaving Club MembersThe swimming is split into two sessions. The first water session which is 6:30pm to 7:10pm is for the younger members of the club that are working on the Rookie awards. Whilst any senior members that are working towards awards such as the life support or life support 3 award use this session to cover their theory material. During the second session, running until 8pm, the senior members of the club that are working towards Bronze Medallion, Award of Merit, Distinction, etc will use the pool time for their fitness training and to learn and practice different lifesaving skills.
