American Red Cross logo

To accommodate current health and safety standards, face masks will be REQUIRED by participants. Our courses have been converted to partially virtual to ensure the safety of all participants. All details of the course will be listed in the agenda.

All Lifeguarding courses align with the American Red Cross program. These courses are designed by industry-leading standards that will provide participants information on how to help others stay safe in, on, or around water. Gain knowledge & demonstrate lifeguarding skills, emergency procedures, become comfortable with water rescue drills, conducting CPR and using an AED, performing first aid and learning how to work with a team. 

  • Lifeguarding Certifications are valid for 2 years upon completion of the course
  • It is the participants responsibility to keep their certification current
  • If you have any questions or issues with your certification please contact the American Red Cross Support Center at 1-(800)-733-2767
