Become an American Red Cross certified pool lifeguard. You must be at least 15 years old, be able to swim 300 yards continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing, and tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs. You must also complete a timed event within 1 minute, 40 seconds. This mandatory pre-requisite testing will occur on the first day of class. Anyone who fails the swim test will receive a refund minus a $50 administrative fee. This is a blended learning course which means much of the classroom work will need to be completed on-line before the first day of class at the pool. Upon passing written and practical exams, you will also be certified in First Aid and CPR for the professional rescuer. Bring your swimsuit and towel to every class. Each participant will receive a CPR mask and whistle. Be prepared for the pre-requisite swim test on the first day of class. Instructor: Kathy Wulfers.
Complete all on-line Red Cross course content before first in-water class.
Must be present at all classes to get certified. Remember to bring swim suit and towel to all classes. Meet on pool deck first day ready to swim pre-requisite test.
