Required references: Trainer Manual, Officials Instructor Award Guide, Officials Award Guide, Canadian Officials Manual, ILS Competition Rule Book, Trainer Training Record.
Costs: In addition to the required reference materials, a certification fee is payable to the Lifesaving Society and submitted with your Training Record. Organizers will charge a fee to cover the cost of running the Trainer course.
