Red Cross Lifeguard Training 2022 (Ages 15+) Register View Cart

This course is an official certification class that follows the newest American Red Cross Lifeguard Training curriculum. Participants will learn the fundamentals of water safety, CPR/First Aid and lifeguard skills for responding to emergency situations in and around the water. The course will feature both classroom style lectures, video and in water skill training. This course reflects the newest and most updated American Red Cross curriculum content. 

Students will be required to demonstrate the following abilities day one:

1.) Treading water for 2 minutes (no hands)
2.) Swimming 300 yards non-stop using front crawl and breaststroke
3.) Retrieving a 10-pound brick from the bottom of the pool at 10 ft. deep, and then swimming the length of the pool with it and climbing out in less than 90 seconds. 

Students must be 15 years of age by the end of the course. A valid ID is required to be presented on the first day of the course. Please come to class the first day with documentation to validate age. In order to pass the course you must pass pre-testing on day one and are required to attend all class sessions, scoring 80% or better on both written exams, and passing the final skills testing.

Note: Please understand that Lifeguard Training is an extensive physical program that requires significant skill level and independent reading. Anyone who can not pass the pre-testing sections will not be refunded. Please make sure that Lifeguard Training is an appropriate fit before you sign up. If you are unsure that you will be able to pass the pre-testing, please consider purchasing a pool membership or paying a daily fee to practice your skills in advance.
