Lifeguard Training | Winter-Spring 2019

Learn to respond to aquatic emergencies with our comprehensive lifeguard training and/or recertification course. Upon completion participants receive a two-year certification in Lifeguard Training, First Aid, CPR for the Professional, & AED.

All classes use a blended learning program requiring about seven hours online at home to watch videos and complete tests, in addition to 20 hours of aquatic training. A $65 fee will be charged to those who do not pass, drop, or transfer to another class. Minimum of three participants per class.

Phase 1: Swim Test
Please show up prepared to swim. Must be 15 years old, able to swim 300 yards without stopping, dive 10’ to retrieve a 10lb. brick, kick on your back with the brick for 20 yard, and tread water for two minutes using only your legs.

Phase 2: Online Study
After you pass the swim test, you will receive a link to register for the online study portion through the American Red Cross. You will need to pay a $35 course fee. Activate your training
