Life Guard Training Course: AMERICAN RED CROSS

Through classroom learning and hands-on practice, participants will learn:
Surveillance skills to help you recognize and prevent injuries, rescue skills – in
the water and on land, first aid training, professional rescuer CPR – to help
you prepare for any emergency, and professional lifeguard responsibilities like
interacting with the public and addressing uncooperative patrons.


To pass course, participants must attend every class session, achieve 80% or
better on each of the written exams (2), and achieve 100% on the Final Practical Skills


Upon completion of between 25-30 hours of classroom and pool
training, successful participants will receive a certificate for Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED from the American Red Cross, valid for 2 years.
