The IWS teaches swimming, lifesaving, water confidence, safety, survival, rescue skills and basic life support.  Courses are provided nationwide to the general public and also to children as part of the primary school curriculum (PAWS – Primary Aquatics Water Safety). The IWS arranges conferences, lectures and demonstrations to Local Authorities, Government Agencies, NGO’s, schools and colleges. It publishes literature to promote water safety and to target at-risk groups. It provides publications on aquatic activities to assist the public adhere to best practices. IWS volunteers carry out risk assessments on bathing areas and waterways nationwide that may pose a particular risk to the public.
