Do you love swimming and people and want to make a difference? Lifeguarding is for you! To become a lifeguard, one must obtain a verified lifeguard certification. We offer an American Red Cross Lifeguarding Course that includes a certification in Lifeguarding as well as CPR/AED/First Aid for the Professional Rescuer.  


Upon registration, participants will receive a link via email to complete the online learning portion of the course prior to the in-person portion of the class. The online portion MUST be completed before the first day of the in-person class session in order to continue the course. There are no exceptions. Participants must complete the 6-hour online learning with a score of 80% or higher on the final online test.
