New Student Lifeguard Certification

Lifeguard Training, First Aid, & CPR/AED

American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification Full Course. This course is a blended course (online and in person). Once registered the American Red Cross Instructor will send the participant the online course material, which requires approximately 7 hours to complete. All on-line course material MUST be completed prior to the first day of the class and presented to start the class. All participants MUST pass the American Red Cross Lifeguard Pre-Test which includes: 300 yard swim; treading water for 2 minutes w/o using arms; retrieving a weighted brick from approximately 10 feet of water and successfully resurfacing to swim on back.
