Lifeguard Certification Classes

Lifeguard certification offers two options:

1. Blended learning combines online learning with on-site skills sessions where you will practice skills and demonstrate competency.

2. In-house session is done on-site for both classroom & water skills.  Classroom session is done via powerpoint  & video clips.  No text book is required however you may purchase on line separately.

Ages 15+*

Participants will learn lifesaving, standard first aid, blood born pathogens protocol, and CPR/AED. Attendance of every class is required for the completion. Upon completion they will receive their certifications from the American Red Cross.
