Lifeguard Training & Review Courses
The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. The blended learning program offers students the ability to combine online learning assignments (approximately 7 hours) with in-class skill sessions (approximately 20 hours.)
Successful completion of the course will result in a 2 year certification in Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED.
The Lifeguarding Pre-test is required for all Lifeguard Training and Re-certification courses. It will take place at the 1st in-class session. Participants must pass all 3 sections, in order to move on to the remainder of the course. See the registration website for additional details on the pre-test requirements.
