Lifeguard course offer for staff and family members

Sport Aston is running another National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) course next month at Woodcock Sports Centre.

As a special offer we are offering this course to staff and family of staff for the discounted price of £150.

Wednesday 14 April 08:00 – 17:00

Thursday 15 April 08:00 – 17:00

Friday 16 April 08:00 – 17:00
