The NWSMP is a suite of interlinked training awards, specifically designed to assist those organisations with employees who work in, on or near water to meet their civil and statutory safety management obligations (especially where employees have supervisory responsibilities). E.g. teachers, technicians, outdoor activity instructors, countryside rangers, community safety wardens, dock workers, the emergency services.
It comprises of 3 levels, along with additional optional bolt-on modules.

Level 1 – Compulsory (Dry Based, i.e. candidates don’t actually get in the water)
For those working or supervising near water who do not have a definite intention to get into the water, e.g. a School Teacher taking a group on a field trip.

Level 2 (Low-level water activity up to thigh height)
For those who have a greater likelihood of getting closer to or in the water but with a definite intention to stay within standing depth, e.g. Construction Worker or Ranger
working at the margins, teacher taking pupils rock pooling, pond dipping, etc.
Candidates MUST complete and pass Level 1 before undertaking Level 2. 

Level 3 (In Water Rescue aimed at PROGRAMMED activities, but NOT free-swimming as this would require the NVBLQ qualification)
For those with clients/people under supervision who might be swimming out of their depth, e.g. Outdoor Pursuit Instructor leading a deepwater activity session, or those
leading/supervising programmed open water activities, e.g. canoeing, kayaking, relays, etc.
