Welcome to SwimBag
SwimBag was formed in 1999 by a small group of voluntary lifeguard trainers, serving the British military community in Germany (hence the name Swim British Army Germany). Qualified lifeguards receive training in health and safety, first aid and pool operations. Using this background the directors are building what we hope is one of the UK's most progressive training providers.
Lifeguards are trained in Health and Safety, Pool Operations and First Aid. These aspects form the core of our services. Based in Peterborough our growing team of trainers from around the country can support you regardless of your location, we have run courses in the Falklands, Brunei, Italy, Germany, Cyprus and Gibraltar. So we should be able to come to you.
Approved by the Health and Safety Executive (15/05), The First Aid Industry Body and The OFQUAL awarding Body Qualsafe, SwimBag delivers the whole range of First Aid at Work qualifications. For those working with children, we offer Paediatric First Aid courses which exceed the requirements of OFSTED.
Public awareness of the benefits of early defibrillation is growing. Many companies and communities are now equipping themselves with their own Automated External Defibrillators (AED). Although it is very simple to use an AED, we offer training and certification in their use.
Lifeguard & Water Safety Training
We started with lifeguard training and it is still a core part of our business. Although we don't have our own pool, we support a lot of organisations in the running of theirs. We have several National Trainer Assessors who train the trainers for the Royal Life Saving Society on our team. So, we can help with training your staff, training your potential trainer or just assisting you with your procedures.
