LIFEGUARD TRAINING,  RECERTIFICATIONS, BLENDED LEARNING

Through videos, group discussion and hands-on practice, you’ll learn teamwork, rescue and surveillance skills, First Aid and CPR/AED and other skills you need to work as a professional lifeguard. Successful completion results in a 2-year certification in Lifeguarding that includes first aid, professional-level CPR and AED in one certificate.

American Red Cross Lifeguard classes are for adults or young adults age 15 and over. Blended Learning lifeguard training classes provide 7 hours of online coursework to be completed prior to entering the classroom. This will enable the in-person lifeguard training sessions to be held in a shorter amount of time.

Seven hours of online coursework needs to be completed by the first day of class. You will receive a record verifying your successful completion of the online portion and this should be brought to the first day of class. Course material will be sent to the email you provide 2 weeks before in-person learning begins.

Completion of the online coursework alone does not certify you as a lifeguard.
