    Good morning,

    Yesterday I started a job at McDonalds at my local motorway services. I didn't particularly enjoy it, so am thinking of giving it up. My leisure centre is running a life guarding course, with the opportunity to receive a nationally recognised qualification. I was wondering if anybody can tell me about the life guarding course, and is it worth the fee, and giving up my job at McDonalds for.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Yes it is worth it! Lifeguard jobs are everywhere, even in other countries.
