Certifying your International Summer Camp Staff

Hello Camp Directors!

As in previous years, NYQUEST is pleased to be working with Shendy’s Swim Centre in Toronto to certify your NYQUESTers and directly-hired international staff with lifesaving and first aid qualifications. And for the first time ever, we’re running a number of courses in the UK (Chester) and Ireland (Dublin) to really maximize this opportunity!

This is an exclusive partnership with Shendy’s and as such, these courses are only open to NYQUEST hires and direct hires – they are not available for staff hired through other work abroad agencies, or Canadians.


Courses Available…

  • Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross with Emergency First Aid
  • Bronze Recertification
  • NLS with Bronze
  • NLS with no Bronze
  • NLS Recertification
  • Standard First Aid
  • Standard First Aid Recertification
  • Emergency First Aid

Please note that NYQUEST charges a $25 admin fee for each non-NYQUEST staff put through any of these courses. This fee includes: sending a swim assessment survey and analysis of results, confirming the registration, providing payment options, sending updates and providing information regarding course location and items to bring.  All NYQUEST participants also receive free transportation to and from the respective course and the Neill Wycik hostel in Toronto. For the courses in the UK and Ireland, participants are responsible for their own transportation and accommodation (if required).

If you are interested, or if you require any additional course (i.e. NLS re-cert), please don’t hesitate to email [email protected]

All the best,

Michelle @ NYQUEST
