Aim of the ASLS™ course

The Advanced Surf Life Support™ (ASLS) course has been custom-made to prepare and train health professionals in acute surfing medicine, to learn and master basic aquatic life saving rescue techniques, and wilderness medicine at remote surf locations.

Who can take an ASLS™ course?

The ASLS™ certification is appropriate for any licensed medical professional who has an interest in surfing and water activities. Medical professionals in training can take the ASLS™ depending on their stage of training. Our graduates include surfing enthusiasts, ship and expedition doctors, physiotherapists of national teams, medical personal from pro surf events, big wave surfers and other water sport professionals, among others.

ASLS Certificate

Every participant attending and completing the course as-well as passing the written and practical exams will get a printed course certificate. The ASLS™ certification lasts for 4 years from the completion of your course. For more details please see our Frequently Asked Questions.

Knowledge to bring

To make the course as effective, efficient, and beneficial as possible, we need participants to study the literature beforehand. Further literature will be provided by us in sufficient time prior to the course commencing. For more details please see our Frequently Asked Questions.

Fitness to bring

The surf rescue training will be incredibly fun but also physically demanding. So you need to be in shape before the start of the course.
