Our First Aid Trainings


ut simply, a parent-rescuer is a parent who owns a residential pool and has taken Aquado’s water safety classes. A parent-rescuer is trained to ensure that every swimmer in their pool is safe all summer long. They know how to recognize swimmers in distress, act at the right time to prevent an accident, provide first-aid care when needed, and they are familiar with basic lifesaving, first-aid and water safety techniques. Lastly, they’re parents who get more enjoyment out of their pool knowing that the chances for an accident are at bare minimum — and after just a two hour course!

Who should take parent-rescuers training?

Pool accidents can happen at any time, and parents are often the first ones to intervene. The first seconds of an accident prove to be the most important, and parents who don’t know how to react put their swimmers at risk. It’s for this reason that Aquado recommends this training for all pool owning parents who lack basic first-aid, CPR, lifesaving and lifeguard skills.

Even if you children know how to swim, an accident can happen at any time and will require your action. And parents of young children or children who can’t swim have an even greater need for this course so they can better monitor their pool parties and reduce the chance of an accident.

In fact,according to the McGill University’s Health Center, 50% of drownings in Canada occur in Quebec alone. It is important to be trained for possible incidents that could be avoided !

If you know other parents who need this course, you’ve come to the right place! With our training, you can invite four other parents for free!

What exactly does this course contain?

We know you don’t have much extra time, and even less so when the two of you are in training. This is why we’ve created a course of just two hours that covers the most important subjects in lifesaving, first-aid and water safety. Here are a few examples:

  • CPR lessons
  • Treating a broken bone, a cut, heatstroke or loss of consciousness
  • Being able to recognize someone who can’t swim or a tired, submerged or struggling swimmer
  • Steps to take during an accident
  • Lifeguarding techniques
  • Removing an unconscious, injured or tired swimmer
