Lifeguards from around the world are being trained on the south coast in how to save lives at sea. More than a million people worldwide drown every year.
This training programme is the first of its kind and it's aimed at preventing deaths in countries, where life saving services are limited.
Martin Dowse reports.
Martin Dowse spoke to lifeguards Ankit Wagh and Syed Fazle Naiz. He also spoke to the RNLI's development manager Steve Wills.
