The National Water Safety Management Programme (NWSMP) is a UK certified modular course designed to respond to the open water safety needs of anyone working near, in or on water to ensure employers' civil and statutory management obligations.  This flexible programme balances the need for simple, preventative and proactive safety management practices alongside effective emergency response skills. The awards allow users to undertake bespoke training programmes with relevant modules most suited to their requirements.
