Open Water Endorsement (OWE)


With many pools currently going through the process of reopening, we are very aware that the early opportunities to provide activities to young people are in outdoor environments only.
At this time of year, you’ll know that the water is still very cold and that water levels will, in some areas, still be high, potentially increasing the risk to candidates. Whilst we urge extra caution, we do not want to discourage instructors and clubs from seizing the opportunity.

Open water sessions must be led and overseen by an RLSS UK qualified Trainer or Instructor, with the relevant endorsement for the qualification they are training or assessing.
