Lifesaving Resources sponsors and conducts annual 4-day Instructor Academies for the purpose of training Water Rescue and Ice Rescue Instructors for Public Safety and Rescue agencies from throughout North America. Upon successful completion of an Academy, graduates are authorized as either Water Rescue or Ice Rescue instructors to conduct courses and certify their personnel at the Awareness, Operations and/or Technician level on behalf of their respective agencies.

These courses meet/exceed NFPA 1670 and NFPA 1006, and certification is valid for 5 years from the course completion date.

Customized Academies can be conducted at the request of Fire, Rescue, EMS, and/or Law Enforcement agencies.  Customized Academies require 4 days of instruction and are dependent upon availability of local lodging, facilities, and faculty, with a minimum enrollment of 6 instructor candidates.
