About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, June 4, 2022.

The International Lifeguard Training Program (ILTP®) is a comprehensive course that includes complete CPR/Emergency Oxygen/First Aid/AED Training. Practical hands-on training, in conjunction with scenario based training, provides for an experiential training content. When practicing rescue skills for an unconscious Guest in Distress, not only are we practicing water skills, but also implementing AR/CPR/FBAO, First Aid skills, Oxygen Administration/BVM/Manual Suction and AED use, all in a single scenario based emergency simulation. All of the skills are integrated. CPR/First Aid/AED/Oxygen/BVM are not strictly classroom based. The textbook information is covered in a classroom setting, however, these skills are then integrated and practiced repeatedly, in scenario based simulated emergencies. These simulated events are never the same; all elements of the skill base must be utilized in order to be successful, and lifeguards must complete given tactile, hands-on, practice with simulated events and real people.

Must be able to pass pre-requisite swim test: Swim 100 yards freestyle or breast stroke. Tread 1 minute with hands out of water. Do a foot first dive to the bottom and retrieve a 10 lb break. *There is also an online component before the start of class.
This will be a blended course (online modules) .
