The American Red Cross Lifeguarding certification course prepares participants to become professional lifeguards. This course will teach students necessary rescue skills, surveillance techniques, CPR & First Aid, and administering an AED. Participants who successfully pass this course will earn an American Red Cross Lifeguarding Certification (valid 2 years). This course will be a blended learning experience that will include classroom sessions, hands-on skills, and online work that must be completed at home. Participants should be prepared to move in and out of the water for skills practice, while also spending extended periods of time in a classroom setting. Participants should bring lunch, water, sunscreen, towel, and a change of comfortable clothing for classroom sessions. ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY AT ALL CLASS SESSIONS TO PASS THE COURSE, NO EXCEPTIONS.

Masks will be required during any classroom and film sessions or any time spent out of the water. Social distancing will be encouraged and emphasized at all times. Online blended learning will be utilized as part of this course.
Regular sanitation of manikins and rescue equipment after class concludes each day.
The class will be divided into smaller cohorts to practice group rescue skills throughout the class. There will be periods of time where individuals will be in close proximity to their cohort without a mask on while practicing in-water skills. Person-to-person contact will be necessary for this class.
Students who are feeling ill are asked to not attend the in-person sessions. Students who do not feel well enough to attend the class should contact the instructor as soon as possible.
