Eleven lifeguard instructors participated in the first two days, but one participant was withdrawn from the course by the Ghana Lifesaving and Diving Association (GHALDA) because of course fees issues. The theoretical and practical sessions of the course were held in the Ghana university swimming pool in “Legon District” in Accra. A suitable room adjacent to the pool used for the theoretical sessions, while the pool was used for the practical sessions. The swimming pool was 50m long, 20m wide and 7m deep on one end. Seven instructors passed the course and three instructors did not.
