Become a Lifeguard

Prepare yourself to help others while giving you a rewarding job opportunity. Learn the duties and responsibilities of lifeguarding, including surveillance, how to use rescue equipment, and how to care for someone who has sustained an injury.

We offer 2 learning formats: Blended learning which includes online study plus onsite skill practice and testing. Our traditional format is all onsite learning. There is a pre-course session in which you are required to pass a swimming skills test.

Upon successful course completion, participants receive an American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification with CPR/AED and First Aid for lifeguards (valid for 2 years). All classes offered will certify you for any depth of water, unless they indicate otherwise.

Prerequisite: 15 years or older, swim 300 yd continuously with breath control, swim 25 yds, retrieve a 10lb diving brick and swim back to wall, and tread water without use of hands for 2 minutes.
